Park City Weekend Agenda: April 24-28

Get local this weekend with everything from Park City Follies and the gallery stroll to bird-watching and dog shows.

By Vanessa Conabee April 24, 2019

Town may be sleepy this time of year (and we sure like the lack of traffic!), but it's also the ideal time to dive into the local scene with everything from art strolls and film to must-see, theatrical parody and guided bird-watching.

All Weekend Long

"Woman At War" Park City Film screening

Friday and Saturday, April 26-27, 8 p.m.; Sunday, April 28, 6 p.m. @ Park City Library

Known to others by her alias, “Women of the Mountain,” Halla lives a double-life, secretly waging war on Iceland’s aluminum industry.  When she receives news that her application to adopt a child has been accepted, she must make difficult choices. 

Park City Follies

Friday and Saturday, April 26-27, 8 p.m.; Sunday, April 28, 6 p.m. @ The Egyptian Theatre (Of note: the Follies also run April 30-May 5)

An annual, musical roast of all things Park City, this show never fails to elicit guffaws from the crowd as it lampoons the latest quirks, politics, and personalities of our mountain town (and beyond). This year, the Egyptian is parlaying the show into a fundraiser for its across-the-street (via tunnel) expansion, including a Black Box Theatre, event space and permanent home for its YouTheatre program. Though regular seats are sold out, access may still be gained to this Park City tradition via Pharaoh Club membership. 

Park City Museum

Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, noon-6 @ Park City Museum

Explore Park City’s rich mining history through hands-on and educational exhibits that take you into a mine shaft and old-time jail. Children can complete a “Park City History Detectives” activity, providing the whole family with a way to dig deeper into Park City’s past through interactive exhibits.

Nature’s Ninjas

Wed-Sun @ Swaner EcoCenter 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Discover some of nature’s best defense mechanisms up close and personal with geckoes, porcupines, and their brethren in this traveling exhibit. Swaner’s EcoCenter offers a number of permanent environmentally-inspired exhibits—and don’t miss the climbing wall on Saturdays and Sundays, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Wednesday, April 24

"Silver and Snow—The Park City Story" screening

5 p.m. @ Park City Library

Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History and Park City Film Series team up for a free screening of Larry Warren’s “Silver and Snow—The Park City Story.” The one-hour documentary, which aired on KUED during the 2002 Olympic Games, features stories from Park City residents, who lived through the decline of the mining era and the rise of the skiing culture.
