At venues across North America, shows presented by Marketplace Events connect homeowners and designers with trusted brands, independent businesses, innovators of new products, and local artisans. The vibrant and inspirational presentations showcase new aesthetic trends and functional designs in the realms of home decor, gardening, energy conservation, and living-space management. In addition to showcasing a range of products and concepts, the event hosts special-guest speakers, who educate audiences on home-remodeling projects from painting walls to adding a fourth dimension to a cramped kitchen.
The experts at Utah Snowkite Center lead courses and clinics on how to harness wind power across open, snow-dusted areas around Salt Lake City and Park City. In sessions ranging from beginner to pro level, students strap into harnesses, kites, and bars provided by the instructors and begin gliding along the snow, eventually learning how to perform tricks like spins and grabs or pulling a rabbit out of your ski boot. Students must provide their own skis or snowboards and helmets for each lesson. In addition to local excursions, Utah Snowkite Center also organizes snowkiting trips throughout the US and to international destinations such as New Zealand and Yukon.

After moving to Utah in 1997, Will Westrate got right to work, assembling a team of fishing experts to lead expeditions along the Provo and Weber Rivers. Each of Will’s hand-picked guides have tallied more than 1,000 days of fly fishing on the local waterways, utilizing their knowledge to mimic seasonal food sources and catch fish on their way back from shopping. The Park City Anglers also regularly explore the Strawberry, Duchesne, and Currant Creek, as well as some smaller streams and tributaries throughout the region.
The inventive creation emporium inspires seasoned artists and fledgling brush wielders alike to conjure up their own masterpieces during lively painting sessions in a warm, welcoming studio. Tote along a favorite bottle of wine or Kool-Aid flavor combo to drizzle over the canvas or share with fellow painters as you bask in attentive instruction and harmonious camaraderie. At the end of the evening, you and your painting partner will each have a magnum opus perfect for living-room-wall adornment or hovercraft-mantel embellishment. The classes are held throughout the week and make an ideal outing for couples, parties, or bachelorette shindigs for the bride of Salvador Dalí's ghost.
