Main Street might look like a free-for-all during the Sundance Film Festival.
But it is not supposed to be.
City Hall regulations cover many of the goings-on seen on or close to Main Street during the festival. There are rule-breakers every year, though, even as Park City officials attempt to widely publicize what is allowed and what is not.
Some of the rules include:
City Hall also tightly regulates business activity. The municipal government requires licenses for many sorts of setups, including gifting and hospitality suites. Municipal rules prohibit people from renting houses or condominiums for corporate activities.
Street musicians must obtain licenses from City Hall. A license costs $5 per day. Others who must obtain the licenses include pantomime artists, magicians and dancers if they expect to be seek donations. Amplified music is not allowed.
