Spending the holidays out on the town in Park City is an exciting, memorable way to celebrate Christmas or ring in 2019! Bring the kids to the Town Lift Plaza on Saturday, December 15. Santa Claus will ride down the Town Lift to greet children at 6:00 p.m. Free hot chocolate will kick off the event at 5:30 p.m. The evening will also feature a live performance by Jazz Pop singer Paul Cave.
There are so many fun and tasty options to choose from in Park City for Christmas and New Year’s, whether you are looking for a sophisticated dining experience or a lively bar. Dining out on Christmas Eve will still get you home in time to leave cookies out for the jolly guy, but consider staying out on New Year’s Eve and raising a glass with a group of friends to toast this incredible start to the ski season for Deer Valley and Park City. Main Street is always a crowded scene on New Year’s Eve – we recommend using Park City’s amazing, free public transit!
