The 46th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival 2015 will be held Friday, July 31, 2015 through Sunday, August 2, 2015 on Historic Main Street in Park City, Utah. One of my favorite summer events, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival promises to be a weekend full of cultural experiences, with over 200 artists from 30 states, live music, kids’ activities, art demos, and great food from Park City’s finest restaurants. 2014 brought the highest number of artist applications to date with 900 applications; the jury hand-picked just over 200 artists, of which over 70 are new to the festival this year.
I’m looking forward to once again joining in the fun for a weekend of food, fun, frolic, art, and music, and over 30 live performances taking place on three different stages.
