Park City has a packed lineup of annual cultural offerings and community events that residents and travelers look forward to every summer. These festivities are the reason this vibrant mountain community is beloved by its locals and why so many flock to the area in the “off-season.” Savor the Summit 2019 is almost upon us and proves year after year to be one of the seasons most anticipated events. Here is what to expect at Savor the Summit and why we think it is worth traveling for!
Every June colorful and elegantly adorned dining tables line Historic Main Street. Restaurants from Park City and Salt Lake gather to share an evening celebrating culinary creativity and community with the state’s largest dinner party! Each year over 2,500 guests will sit at the “grand table” to be served by 20 of the area’s best epicureans. Every restaurant provides a different experience with a unique food and drink menu.
To the sound of live local bands, clinking glasses, laughter, and conversation, guests can watch the sunset on Historic Main Street and enjoy course after course prepared by the area’s most respected chefs. You can choose an old favorite dining spot or use this as an opportunity to select a cuisine or restaurant that you have never tried. Seats book up fast but there are several participating restaurants that have spots still open. So, grab your most adventurous foodie-friends and get your tickets today!

“I remember the first time I worked this event. The air was buzzing with excitement as tables were set up and temporary outdoor kitchens were erected on the side streets. Every participating restaurant curates its theme, a unique menu, and table design. The converging motifs transformed the street into a new world with varying color and texture as the air slowly filled with the smells of simmering pots and smoked meats. Our team had been planning for months. Dishes had been tested, tweaked and perfected; plating and presentation had been finalized; everything was planned down to the last, minute detail. As the first guests began to trickle in, the energy became joyous not only for those experiencing the event but for those whose hard work was finally about to pay off.” – Rachelle Sherman Former Cuisine Unlimited Pastry Manager
