As the seasons start to charge and the weather cools off, it signals the beginning of a beautiful time in Park City, early fall. With this time of the year and the opening of various events and businesses, we have a full schedule for those looking for some Park City fun.
September and October of this year give way to the continued opening of movie theatres, a resumption of concerts, and a focus on the outdoors. This is probably the most jam-packed event season we have seen since the onset of coronavirus, and boy, are we excited!
Let’s start with one of the most anticipated events, the Park City Wine Festival.

The big event in September that we’re most excited about is the Park City Wine Festival.

Whether you are a full-fledged foodie or an emerging fan, you are sure to find more than one event to whet your appetite at this event. There is something for everyone: food and wine tastings, seminars and luncheons, and outdoor adventures with food and wine influences.
In 2021, there will be four Grand Tastings in Canyons Village at Park City Mountain. There will be two on Friday, October 1, and two more on Saturday, October 2. Please visit the event website for more details and tickets.
