History of the Park City Kimball Art Festival

In 1969, a small group of local artists joined together to start a local art festival. In 1976, Bill Kimball purchased a dilapidated building on the corner of Park and Heber Avenues and started an art center, calling it the Kimball Art Center. The Park City Kimball Art Festival has been a primary fundraiser for the Art Center and is held annually on Main Street. Proceeds from the event provide access to the arts, free exhibitions, and youth programs for the local community throughout the year.

Currently

The City Service Agreement between the City and Kimball Art Center expired on August 15, 2022.
