Park City, UT – Named a “can’t miss summer festival” by Smithsonian Magazine, the 49th annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival will take place August 3rd – 5th on the town’s Historic Main Street.
“We’re thrilled to welcome over 225 juror-selected artists from around country,” noted Festival manager, Allison Webb. “While the innovative artwork across twelve different mediums is always the focus, there are several new features this year we’re pretty excited about as well.”
Among them, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival is adding tequila to the mix. Attendees 21 + can explore the Vida Tequila lounge and enjoy a specialty cocktail — the Vida MargARTrita — crafted just for Arts Fest. Additionally, Kimball Art Center teachers will host a Studio on Main, allowing participants to create unique pieces of art to take home. And if that doesn’t have you spinning, this surely will — Peloton will be
set up with a chance to experience its indoor cycling bike with live or on-demand classes.
“And of course, we’ll have the live music, beer gardens, kids’ area, and gourmet cuisine the event has become known for,” added Allison. “And Festival After Dark is back with concerts, a free film at City Park, and the symphony. We’re also partnering with local art galleries and showcase a weekend-long Gallery Stroll.”
Presented by Zions Bank, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival is the Kimball Art Center’s largest fundraiser and allows the organization to provide free year-round exhibitions, education, and creative community events. Arts Fest draws a crowd of over 53,000 people and brings more than $20 million in economic impact to the state of Utah each year.
To save money and time, the public is encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online. “Tickets are just $12 for adults and $5 for kids when purchased before the Festival,” Allison noted. “Adult tickets increase to $15 at the gate, and those with advanced tickets can quickly exchange them for a wristband and avoid waiting in line.”
