What Makes Park City Real Estate Valuable? The Kimball Arts Festival
I as I was driving into work today with my wife, she mentioned that it was the Arts Festival that brought her to Park City. Ask a local why they live in Park City, UT and many will answer that they came here for a winter and never left. In my wife’s case, it was pictures from the Arts Festival that was the draw that put things over the top.
The annual Kimball Arts Festival is one of the many things beyond the skiing, biking, golf, snowboarding, hiking or … that make Park City, Utah special. It is a vibrant piece of the local Park City community (residents and vacationers alike actively volunteer to help with the festival). Local amenities like the Arts Festival make Park City Real Estate Valuable by adding to the Park City Lifestyle.
This year marks the 41st annual Kimball Arts Festival. The festival runs Friday August 6th (6pm-8pm) Through Sunday August 8th (Sat 9 am-7 pm, Sun 9 am-6pm). Note that the Friday evening opening is a special “local” event that is free (suggested $10 donation goes to the Kimball Arts Center) and the least crowded time of the festival.
The Kimball Arts Festival in Park City, UT is touted as one of the top ten arts festivals in the country (don’t ask me who said this). Each year they receive more than 1000 applicants for only 325 spaces. Tents line the middle of Main St as the area is closed to traffic for the weekend to make way for the anticipated 45,000 attendees. Only the Sundance Film Festival and Fourth of July Parades in Park City put so much pressure on Historic Main St. Things will be crowded, but that is part of the lure. It is impossible to walk through without running into friends you haven’t seen in a while.
Music has been a recent addition to the Arts Festival with 3 different stages running throughout the festival. A free film screening by the Sundance Institute will be held on Friday night at Park City’s City Park. Local restaurants have also gotten into the spirit with the “Taste of Art” offering festival goers special pricing and limited time menu offerings.
Real Estate for parking in Park City is at a premium during the Kimball Arts Festival. Follow the signs and directions of the volunteers. Plan on parking away from the festival and walking in or hopping on a free shuttle.
