The annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival that takes place on Park City's historic Main Street is much more than three days of hundreds of exhibiting artists. Its organizers have gone out of their way to make it a more inclusive celebration of all the artistic things that make Park City such a unique mountain enclave. Perhaps one of the best parts of the festival is the Taste of Art program, where many of the area's celebrated cafes and award-winning restaurants will offer deals and specials to hungry visitors. The weekend's Festival After Dark includes events like Friday night's City Park screening of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival favorite Twenty Feet from Stardom—and if seeing the documentary isn't enough, Muscle Shoals with Lisa Fischer (featured in the film) will play at Deer Valley on Sunday night. Also at Deer Valley, the Utah Symphony continues its summer music festival with two concerts featuring the music of Disney and Neil Diamond. Or you can wander over to Canyons Resort for a free show featuring Honey Island Swamp Band. And The Egyptian Theatre on Main Street will feature two national comics, Maria Shehata and Dave Goldstein. Regardless of your artistic preference, the Kimball Arts Festival offers something enticing—whether that's some new ceramic wares, a shiny piece of handcrafted jewelry, a large painting or photograph, or simply the opportunity to get out of the valley heat and into the cool, fresh mountain air.
