Celebrate Summer in the Mountains: 5 Reasons to Visit Park City This June

Stay at 159 Woodside Ave. within walking distance of Main Street for stunning views and no need to find parking!

Although it’s easy to feel the post-winter blues once the ski season ends in Park City, the silver lining of a gloriously temperate summer is always just around the corner — one filled with live concerts, outdoor markets and gourmet social events on par with major cities.  If Park City isn’t in your summer plans yet, here are 5 reasons we think you should visit this June:

“Asleep at the Wheel” at the Egyptian Theater (June 23-25)

It’s a rarity to hear good old fashioned country rock anymore. If you crave the rhythm of Johnny Cash and the beats of Western Swing, this is the concert you’ve been missing. The 9-time Grammy Award-winning band “Asleep at the Wheel” will celebrate 44 years of country music-making with a rock element that earned praise from Van Morrison.

Savor the Summit (June 18)

Park City’s longest dinner party isn’t just about celebrated chefs and wine pairings, although with more than 20 restaurants in a dozen different types of cuisine, there’s certainly enough to celebrate. This Main Street tradition is also about enjoying Park City’s mountain setting while bringing together old friends and new to rehash the best moments of the last ski season and make plans for new summer adventures, from paddle-boarding to mountain biking. Reserve a Main Street Collection home, and you won’t even need to worry about parking.

Deer Valley Music Festival (Ongoing)

Indulge your inner classical music enthusiast in the stunning setting of Deer Valley’s natural Snow Park amphitheater. No matter your favorite genre (Broadway Pops? Mozart and Mendelssohn?), Deer Valley’s lineup features something for everyone. Your concierge can help you arrange the perfect evening, complete with a bottle of your favorite wine and a picnic. Stay at select luxury Deer Valley properties, and you’ll also enjoy a complimentary 4th night.

Park Silly Sunday Marketing (Ongoing)

This open-air, eco-friendly market is a hidden gem of summer — and not just for art enthusiasts. Although you may indeed find the perfect piece  for your entryway, you’re just as likely to remember the buttery kettle corn, live music and street performers. Walking to this free community event is encouraged, an easy feat with city-wide complimentary bus service and plenty of Main Street accommodations.

Ritual Chocolate Tours (June 23)

Complement your hiking, zip line riding and scenic chairlift rides with one of Park City’s hidden specialties — chocolate. The Ritual Chocolate factory tour and tasting includes an overview of our company, the ethnobotany of cacao, industry history, various tastings of the chocolate during production, a walk through of the full process, and (of course) a tasting. Ask us how to set up a tour.
