PARK CITY, Utah — With over 100 restaurants in Park City, information, specials, news, and events get lost in the shuffle. The Park City Area Restaurant Association (PCARA) was created to streamline information for locals and visitors and support its restaurant members.
The PCARA, a non-profit organization of over 70 restaurants, showcases Utah’s culinary uniqueness. Amid a resort-town ambiance, PCARA emphasizes local cuisine and business.
The website breaks down holiday offerings from Mother’s Day to Christmas and Hannukah; see below for this week’s Labor Day goings-on. What are the best options for watching the Super Bowl or March Madness? Who has happy hour specials? PCARA covers that, too.
Beyond restaurants, the PCARA platform showcases Park City’s outdoor activities and events. PCARA members receive invaluable resources: advertising aid, social media promotion, media exposure, targeted marketing, and event participation.
