The Park City Summit County Arts Council is encouraging residents to experience art in nature.

The Art on the Trails event happens this Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and takes place on McCloud Creek Trail. PCSC Director of Programs and Engagement Jocelyn Scudder explains the event.

“It’s the trail between Copper Moose Farm Stand and Temple Har Shalom right at that fork right off of 224. We’re looking for people to come and participate or even people might even happen upon, this is an open trail. People that do come will be pleasantly surprised to find multiple pop-up creative experiences as they walk or run or bike down the trail. Guests will encounter and classical music, folk music, spoken word poetry and more. This is free and open to the public; all ages are welcome and encouraged to come.”

Performers include local musicians, poets and dancers.

“Our performers include Carlos Emjay who’s a local musician singer/song writer. Then we have Hector Ahumada he is a spoken word poet from Chile, he actually lives locally. Then we have Kendall Fischer and Fiona Neilson who will be doing contemporary dance. Bill Mcginnis who will be playing some folk-music for us on the guitar. Finally, we have a youth cello duet, so we’ll be showcasing the young talents of Ellie Wirthlin and Breighton Papac. It will all be unplugged so there shouldn’t be any noise pollution on either end. Of course, in Park City we love to blend art and nature.

Scudder says that they wanted to make the event accessible to all.

“McCloud Creek trail is a very flat, shaded gravel trail. So we wanted all levels of expertise with hiking to be able to participate. The event will take place on approximately a one-mile stretch of the trail between Copper Moose Farm Stand and Temple Har Shalom. It looks like we’re going to have continued great weather through the weekend. We encourage people to come wear sunscreen, wear a hat, comfortable walking shoes and again bikes are definitely welcome. We do ask people to park at the Willow Creek parking lot right by that dog pond off of Old Ranch Road. It’s free and we have permission from Basin Rec to do that.”
