Park City Special Event History & Facts
Long before Park City, Utah became a world class ski destination, 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 hosts the Sundance Film Festival each year which brings over 71,000 visitors to Park City within a ten day period.
Special events are an important part of our mountain 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.
International Events The Egyptian Theater is one of the Main Street venues during the Sundance Film Festival. More >>
Regional & National Events Events held on Historic Main Street include the Park City Kimball Arts Festival, Tour of Utah and Triple Crown Baseball and Softball Tournament
The combination of world-class cyclists, magnificent scenery, relentless climbs over high mountain routes, the punishing challenge of desert courses, and urban circuits have earned “America’s Toughest Stage Race” the respect of competitors, sponsors and cycling fans worldwide. More >>
