The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy says that 21 female entrepreneurs from around the world will be in Utah on Sunday to engage with local business women.
The international visitors will meet with Kimberly Kuehn, co-founder of the Park Silly Sunday Market, and other vendors during a tour and preview of the market before it opens.
The women, from countries that include Albania, Croatia, Laos, Peru and Tajikistan, will be visiting Utah as part of a U.S. Department of State educational and cultural affairs program that is designed to provide international visitors with examples of entrepreneurial efforts in the U.S., particularly those initiated by women.
The Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting global understanding between the people of Utah and other nations. The Park Silly Sunday Market is an open-air market and street festival held on Park City's Historic Main Street. The market will be open every Sunday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. until Sept. 23.
