Come to the Carbon Corridor for music, arts, crafts and more this summer

(Carbon Corridor)

As everything reopens, one of the things people are most excited about is live music coming back. Gathering together with loved ones and new friends and soaking in the summer sun, what more could anyone ask for?

There is nothing quite like soaking in the sunshine while enjoying live music and the Carbon Corridor has plenty of tunes to keep your summer rockin'. From symphonic orchestras, cover bands, and local talents you won't want to miss one of the many opportunities to explore the Corridor while jamming out to some tunes.

Helper Saturday Vibes

From the founders of Park City Silly Market, we are excited to announce the newest music event here in the Corridor. Helper Vibes takes over Helper's Main Street on Saturday, July 24 and 31, August 14 and September 4 and transforms the area into a perfect hangout the whole family will enjoy.

Enjoy a collection of regionally acclaimed bands, a full beer garden, hand-picked local artisans, delicious food vendors and local businesses that call Main Street home. Want to bring the kids along? Kids will have a blast in the bounce house, participating in crafts, or even learning all about recycling at one of our zero waste stations presented by Recyclops.

Helper Arts and Music Festival

After the cancelation of the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Helper hopes to make the 2021 Helper Arts and Music Festival the best one yet. Helper's rich artistic history makes it a perfect spot for this festival that celebrates supporting local artists, educating, and giving access to art for everyone. This year's festival will be held in downtown Helper August 20-22.

From indie, to rock, to pop, and more, no matter your taste in music, you can find something to jam out to on the main stage in the Main Street Park. This event will make you leave feeling inspired after visiting the Artist Marketplace, where you can watch live painting, sculpting, sketching, and so much more. In addition to artist exhibitions and live music, visitors can look forward to arts and crafts, a children's art yard, a vintage car show, and films from the Butch Cassidy Film Festival.

Price City International Days

This fan-favorite event has a little bit of everything for everyone running July 29-31. Throughout the weekend enjoy bands on the main stage, check out the carnival games, and sneak a peek at some amazing classic cars before they participate in the annual burnout competition!
