Park City is a beautiful city, well-known for its participation in the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, shopping centers, the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s amazing skiing. Many tourists only think of Park City as a fun winter destination; when in reality there are so many things to do in Spring as well.
The Spring Grüv is an annual event in Park City that has something for everyone. This year it is being held March 12- March 27, 2016. This 16-day long event has everything from free concerts, a St. Patrick’s day scavenger hunt, Gatorade sampling, a pond skimming contest, and an Easter celebration.
If outdoor concerts sound like your idea of a good time, you’ll love coming to the Spring Grüv where they have a concert nearly every day. You can hear headliners like John Brown’s Body on March 19th, or Michael Franti & Spearhead on March 26th. If you like listening to more up-and-coming bands you won’t be disappointed because they have multiple bands performing throughout the Spring Grüv, and the best part is all of these concerts are outside. So you can enjoy the mountain air and fresh music all for FREE. Check out our calendar below for specific show dates.
When you’re not enjoying one of the free outdoor concerts, Park City has a ton of other options for you to enjoy. Head to Historic Main street and enjoy over 70 retail stores, specialty shops, spas, and art galleries. Park City was founded by miners in the 1800s providing a rich history with many things to do and see in this part of town. If you happen to be in Park City during the Spring Grüv, you need to make sure and go to the Pond Skimming Contest. Here you will see participants dressed up in the craziest outfits trying to skim across a pond on either their skis or snowboard. Few make it across without getting drenched which makes it hilarious for the spectators to watch.
