Park City is a breathtaking mountain town that comes alive during the summer months. With stunning scenery, world-class amenities and an endless array of activities, it’s the perfect destination for a summer getaway. Here are the top 10 things to do in Park City this summer.

1. Farmer’s Market & Park Silly Market

The Park City Farmer’s Market, held every summer Wednesday from 12pm to 5pm, is a great way to support the local community and enjoy the fresh mountain air. You’ll find a wide array of local produce, baked goods, specialty food items, art, jewelry, and much more. Pick up a few snacks for a mid-hike picnic, some veggies for a fresh dinner, or locally made items to bring back home as souvenirs or gifts. You can also enjoy a free 30-minute outdoor yoga class (suggested $10 donation) – a great way to get some movement in before browsing the market. This year (2024), the Farmer’s Market will be held at the First Time Lift Parking Lot at Park City Mountain Resort.  

Park Silly Market is a weekly open-air market and street festival on historic Main Street in Park City. Held every Sunday from 10am to 5pm (June, July, and September – there are no August market dates), this is a must visit if you’re looking for something unique and fun to do during your summer visit! The vendors are different every week, and you’ll find everything from delicious gourmet foods, to art, antiques, and more. Live music performances keep the mood festive, and you are sure to find something unique or tasty to bring home. This is such a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

There are also a number of summer events, including multiple concert series at the resort’s Canyon Villages area.
