The Lowdown on the Deer Valley Summer Concert Series

If live music and summer picnics sound like your idea of fun, it’s time to check out one of Deer Valley Resort’s outdoor concerts. Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, hosts dozens of summer performances at its Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater, at 2250 Deer Valley Drive South. Here’s an insider’s guide on what to see, where to eat, and what to bring.

What to See

The amphitheater hosts several evening shows a week during the summer, ranging from country stars to opera, folk singers, and pop musicians.  Three different summer series offer performances each week.

The Utah Symphony | Utah Opera hosts the Deer Valley Music Festival, with performances on Friday and Saturday nights from July 1 to August 5, 2017, and one performance on Thursday, July 20. (The Music of Prince with the Utah Symphony) Highlights include Leslie Odom, Jr , winner of the 2016 Best Actor Award for his performance in Hamilton, singing Broadway and jazz hits on July 15 with the Utah Symphony. On August 5, hear Classical Mystery Tour and the Utah Symphony play a tribute to the Beatles, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Another music festival favorite is the August 4 Utah Symphony performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.  Be ready for the live cannons!

The St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series, hosted by the Park City Institute, brings bluegrass, big band, pop and jazz musicians to Deer Valley Resort. Country artist Kellie Pickler, who gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of American Idol in 2006 performs on July 16.  Grammy award-winning artist, Melissa Etheridge, will perform on July 27.  Singer-songwriter Josh Turner caps off the series on Sept. 3.

Mountain Town Music’s Grand Valley Bank Community Concert Series features local musicians. It’s a fantastic midweek date night—ride your bike to the amphitheater, picnic, and dance on the grass. Plenty of families come, too.

For a full concert schedule and pricing, visit Deer Valley’s event calendar.

What to Eat

The Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater is one of the rare venues that allows guests to bring their own coolers of food and drink, including wine and beer in glass bottles.  If you’re picnicking, you can either bring your own or order a basket for pick-up from the concession stand.

Deer Valley Gourmet Picnic Baskets range from $47 to $84, depending on the size. They include such items as smoked salmon or chilled beef, artisan cheese, salad, baguettes and dessert. A vegetarian option is also available, as well as wines and local beers for an additional price.

It’s an easy option, since you pick it up from the concession stand, and it comes with plates, cutlery and moist towelettes. You can leave the cooler at home and just bring your blanket and chairs.



Deer Valley also offers Picnic Bags, which include gourmet wraps, salad, housemade chips and cashew caramel popcorn. A children’s Picnic Bag is also available. Prices range from $32 to $56. To order a Picnic Basket or bag, call 435-645-6613.

A concession stand also sells burgers, chili, hot dogs and salad. At the stand, you can also find a Deer Valley staple: the vanilla ice cream sandwich, with chocolate chip cookies and hot fudge. Note: The concession stand doesn’t serve alcohol, but you can exit the amphitheater and go next door to Snow Park Lodge’s Deer Valley Etc. store, which sells beer.

For some last-minute picnic items, Deer Valley Grocery~Café is also at the Snow Park area and offers gourmet grocery items, takeaway entrées, beer amd wine. Dinner and drinks are served at the café until 7 p.m. daily and until 8:30 p.m. daily from June 16 to Sept. 4, 2017.

For pre-show dinner and drinks, check out The Brass Tag in the Lodges at Deer Valley. Nearly everything is fired in a brick oven, and the bar has won awards for its creative cocktails.

Other Tips

  • Bring a sweater! Once the sun sets over the ridge, Park City summer nights can get chilly. If you forget one, Deer Valley’s sundries shop in Snow Park Lodge sells clothes and hot chocolate.
  • Plenty of free parking is available at Snow Park Lodge, but allow yourself enough time. Carpooling or taking Park City’s free transit system is recommended.
  • Concerts are held rain or shine, so check the weather and bring rain gear if necessary. In the rare event that a show is canceled due to inclement weather, picnic orders are still available for pickup after 6 p.m. next to the concession stand.
  • Coolers, glass containers and chairs are permitted. Animals are not. For ticketed shows, chairs must be less than nine inches tall.
  • Concert tickets are available online through respective concert promoters or at Deer Valley’s Signatures stores (625 Main Street, Park City and Silver Lake Village) or Deer Valley Etc. at Snow Park Lodge.
