What is Park City’s cultural scene like?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Park City has a thriving art, music and performance scene — so much so that the city has been dubbed the unofficial cultural capital of Utah. The most famous attraction is of course the wildly popular Sundance Film Festival, an annual event when filmmakers and celebrities of every kind flock to this mountain town to screen the latest in independent film. Besides these high-wattage visitors, many creative types call the roughly 10,000-citizen city home. The central hub for many Park City’s artistic activities is Historic Main Street, where galleries, live music venues and other performance spaces are found. Other colorful festivals showcase the best in arts and music, like the Park City Kimball Arts Festival, Park City Film Series, Deer Valley Concert Series, Park City Jazz Festival and Concerts in the Canyons. Visitors who don’t plan their trip to Park City around one of these well-liked festivals can still partake of the city’s arts scene by stopping by the Kimball Arts Center, attending the Park City Gallery Association’s Last Friday Gallery Stroll or buying tickets to a performance at the Egyptian Theatre, the city’s longtime theatre company.
