The Park City Summit County Arts Council is pleased to release its “Summit County Arts and Culture
2013 Report.” This is the third report of its kind published by the Arts Council. The Report
provides updated information from our 2012 Report on arts and cultural programs and events in
Summit County and demonstrates the continued growing economic impact of arts and culture on Summit
County and the State of Utah.
The report highlights research conducted in 2011 which showed that 52% of visitors to Park City
selected events and concerts as their reason for visiting.
The report also shows that:
- Summit County’s arts and culture generated $138 million in economic stimulus to the County and
the State of Utah in 2012, which is a $9 million increase over the previous year.
- Summit County-based cultural organizations conservatively employ more than 650 full-time and
part-time workers with an estimated 67% living in Summit County.
- Summit County’s arts and culture organizations estimate that, on average, 70% of their budgets
are spent in the County. This calculates to nearly $38 million in direct expenditures to the local
economy (an increase of $6 million over the previous year).
The full report is available on the Arts Council’s website at www.pcscarts.org. Simply click on
