New to this year’s festival is a bike valet to encourage alternate transportation options and a new and improved kids’ interactive art area. More than 200 artists, including all 12 Best in Show winners from 2016, come from 34 states and Canada, representing a wide variety of artistic mediums.
“The Park City Kimball Arts Festival is the culmination of our year-long work to inspire the Utah community through art, and this huge summer celebration provides vital cultural and economic value to Park City,” explained the KAC’s new Executive Director, Lindsie Smith. “Art is the center of the celebration but we also look forward to experiencing the programming our community partners plan that helps make this event well-rounded and unique like yoga, film, food and more.”
Fundraising from The Kimball Arts Festival allows the organization to provide free year-round art exhibitions, gallery tours, monthly Art Talks and art education outreach to teachers, students and others throughout the community.
The KAC will continue to host Friday Locals’ Night, allowing local residents to preview the art, enjoy live music and gather with the community on Main Street free of charge. Festival goers will also have access to the Kids’ Art Area, Food Truck Round-Up, Taste of Art, Utah Artisans, Park City Gallery Association’s Festival Gallery Stroll, Yoga Fest and unique Dining Decks.
