Fall is one of the most magical times of the year in Park City. The crowds have dwindled, and the town truly belongs to the locals again.

Miners' Day

Summer sure does fly by in Park City thanks to our abundance of activities, events, and perfect weather. It’s hard to believe we are somehow nearly through August! That means we are just days away from Labor Day. Since Park City has a history of marching to the beat of its own drum, we celebrate Miners’ Day instead. Intended to commemorate Park City’s silver mining heritage, the Miners' Day festivities on Monday, Sept. 3 are fun and funky. Unlike the July 4th holiday that attracts throngs of visitors, Miners’ Day is truly ruled by the locals.

Park City breweries and distilleries

While the Greatest Snow on Earth may be Utah’s most famous product, distilled spirits are catching up in gaining notoriety. That’s right…a state that has commonly been viewed as restrictive when it comes to alcoholic beverages is producing some mighty fine beer and spirits. The most internationally recognized brand, of course, is Park City’s own High West Distillery, which now has its operations on the outskirts of town in Wanship at Blue Sky Ranch. While High West put Utah on the map for craft spirits, the much longer running local institution – Wasatch Brewery – has been brewing tasty craft beer since 1986. The success of both businesses has inspired others to follow suit. Whether you are a connoisseur, looking to become more knowledgeable, or
