3. Lincoln Highway Concert at the Homestead Resort

We know you've been longing for warm summer nights and live music. The first chords will be strummed at the Homestead Resort in Midway when Lincoln Highway takes the stage. Grab your blanket, picnic basket , and friends and come enjoy a medley of Celtic, bluegrass, and folk style music. There will be BBQ food along with other snacks available for purchase at the event. The event is the first of a series of free concerts at Homestead; you can join them every Saturday at 7 p.m. through September 16.

4. Screening of Norman

Park City Library will screen the American indie film Norman from June 2 to 4 as part of the monthly offerings from Park City Film Series. Set in New York City, the film follows Richard Gere as Norman Oppenheimer, a fascinating character, constantly dreaming up financial schemes that fall flat. Tickets for Norman are $8 for general admission, $7 for students and seniors. You can also purchase a 10-pass punch from parkcityfilmseries.com for $65 that you can use for this and future screenings.
