It’s official, the 2016 summer season of the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights summer concert season is upon us in #ParkCity. Now in it’s 13th season, grab a blanket, a picnic basket and listen to some of the hottest touring acts in the country at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Lodge Outdoor Amphitheater this summer. From the retro-hip Squirrel Nut Zippers to the country songs of Trace Adkins, you can’t go wrong sitting back and listening to music under the stars. The non-profit Park City Institute presents the series, donating 20% of the tickets to the underserved communities in Park City, because everyone deserves music.
Concerts are held rain or shine so be sure to bring some warmer clothing and evenings in Park City are much cooler than in Salt Lake City.
Here’s an idea, make it a weekend in Park City and take advantage of your 3rd night free, or save 20% on stays of two nights or more.
