Things To Do

6 Arts & Culture Picks for November

Discover unique photography, groove out with the King of Telluride bluegrass, and summit Myanmar's highest peak--all without leaving Park City this November.

By Michaela Wagner October 29, 2018

The Photo '18 exhibit on display at the Julie Nester Gallery (Oct. 26 - Nov. 27) features work from seven photographers.

November has most of us thinking about the return to winter sports, but sliding down the mountain isn't the only thing coming up in Park City. The beginning of the ski season will also be accompanied by insightful art exhibits, lively concerts, and more. Check out some of our favorite up-and-coming arts and culture events below.

Foghat at Egyptian Theatre

November 1-4, 7:30 p.m.

Timeless English rock band Foghat takes the stage at the Egyptian Theatre for four nights of shows. Despite several line-up changes over the years, the band still remains strong. With hits like Slow Ride, I Just Want to Make Love to You, and Fool for the City, their mixture of blues, boogie, and rock 'n' roll promises an electric atmosphere and a toe-tapping good time! Tickets range from $43-$75 and can be purchased via the Egyptian Theatre

Patricia Smith Art Exhibit at the Park City Library

On display through November 30

If you haven't visited the Patricia Smith exhibit at the Park City Library yet, November is your last chance. A local artist, Smith is known for her iconic watercolor and vibrant oil landscapes. Though you can see her famous Olympic banners on Main Street, this exhibit is worth popping into for a look around. Admission is free.

Join the Father of Newgrass and King of Telluride, Sam Bush, as he lights up the stage at the DeJoria Center (970 N. State Road 32, Kamas) on November 10 with energetic bluegrass tunes. Since picking up his first mandolin at the age of 11 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Bush has channeled his efforts into innovating and changing the bluegrass and roots musical landscape. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased here
