Get ready for Forum Fest at Canyons Village July 3-6

Four days of free music, fireworks, drone shows and family-oriented fun

PARK CITY, Utah – Next week, Canyons Village at Park City Mountain will host the third annual Forum Fest, a free, multi-day celebration from July 3-6, featuring live music, fireworks, drone shows, family activities, and a variety of food and beverages, offering the perfect Fourth of July experience for Park City residents and visitors alike.

“With each year, Forum Fest has only gotten bigger and better. We’re excited to welcome back some beloved programming like the drone shows and fireworks while keeping things fresh with the introduction of new, fun activities like the daily ice cream social, axe throwing, a new mini golf course, and much more. We’ll also be unveiling the brand-new Mountain Stage to host even more concerts and events for guests to Canyons Village. As one of the most popular events we put on, we look forward to continuing to grow it and make it a must-attend event for families looking to celebrate the Fourth of July in Park City,” Whitney Ryan, Director of Marketing & Public Relations at Canyons Village Management Association said.

Now, with two stages on property, the Forum and Mountain stages, and multiple venues across all of Canyons Village, organizers are eyeing even more ways to bring concerts, shows, and performances to Park City Mountain. The event works in tandem with local non-profit, Mountain Town Music, to bring a lineup of nationally-known and locally-loved music that packs a punch.

“We love showcasing the extensive local and regional talent here in Utah. We’ve been lucky to work closely with Mountain Town Music as one of their 13 sponsored venues to connect with those local musicians and utilize MTM’s support in bringing year-round music to Canyons Village. With our 360-degree mountain views and natural landscape, we have created an amazing environment for guests to experience live music that we are really proud of,” Ryan said.
