What to do in Park City this weekend: Terzian Galleries opening, Beethoven Festival, and Saints and Sinners Ball
Feeling generous this weekend? This weekend has several opportunities to dig deep and contribute to various causes. The Park City Institute holds its annual Saints and Sinners Ball, and the Utah Symphony will hold a fundraiser to support musical programs in Haiti. Other musical acts this weekend will take place, including “Sudan and Me” and the Park City Beethoven Festival.
One programming note: The Egyptian Theatre was scheduled to host Dave Mason this weekend, but he is unable to perform due to strained vocal cords. The band Iron Butterfly is replacing him. For a full list of special events and weekly community events, visit our online calendar.

Park City Institute’s Saints and Sinners Ball

Mischief, mayhem and maybe a little madness take over for the Saints and Sinners Ball to support the Student Outreach Programs of the Park City Institute.
