The Special Events Department is part of the Sustainability and Economic Development Department within the City of Park City.  We create a place to work, live, and play that strengthens the character and vibrancy of our community.  Our goal is to create a balanced and viable mountain resort community.  The Special Events Department permits events within Park City limits and coordinates impacts of events with out community partners, neighborhoods, and surrounding city, county, and state jurisdictions.

Events are an important part of our community both culturally and economically.  From arts and recreation, sun to snow, and international to local - Park City has a diverse event calendar that offers something for everyone.  The Special Events Department continues to work to both facilitate events and mitigate their impacts, including efficiently managing events taking place in the Park City area.  Staff focus is in balancing between positive economic and cultural outcomes and the community impacts that events cause.

Park City & Event History

Long before Park City, Utah became a world class ski destination and popular event location, it was a booming silver mining town. Founded by prospectors in 1868, Park City continued to mine silver until the 1970s and at one point was considered a ghost town of the Wild West. Park City is now home to two world class resorts, Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain, and permits nearly 80 events per year, including the Sundance Film Festival which brings over 71,000 visitors to Park City within a ten day period.                     

Special Events help define who we are as a mountain town and is an integral part of our community. From sporting to cultural events, to outdoor concerts and internationally renowned festivals, here are some examples of the wide range of events held in Park City.
