When an event or festival turns 50, you know it’s about to be a big celebration and it must be fun if it has been around that long. In Park City, UT, the 50th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival is taking place on August 1-4th. Wonder down to historic Main Street as the arts festival gets lively and is a great time for all ages.
The Art Starts Here Gala begins on August 1st from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Kimball Terrace on Main Street. It is an innovative event that may also inspire you to appreciate the importance of art.
