Park City Arts Fest Foods
The 46th annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival kicks off this year on July 31 and will continue through Aug. 2 on historic Main Street in Park City. In addition to great art, this year's festival will also feature a number of "food happenings." New to the 2015 festival are Taste of Art, Utah Artisan Tasting and the Food Truck Round-Up. The Artisan Tasting will highlight four Utah-based craft-food producers: Amour Spreads, Desire Desserts, Julie Ann Caramels and Millcreek Cacao Roasters. The Wasatch Brew Pub parking lot will be the scene for mobile fare, featuring trucks from Reef's, La Table Crepes, Rolling Mountain Bistro and Bruges Waffles, plus a beer garden and live music. Finally, restaurants collaborating with The Kimball Arts Center for the Taste of Art program—with special promotions and pricing for Arts Festival weekend—include Wahso, Chimayo, La Niche, Grappa, Bangkok Thai on Main and Baja Cantina.
