While we’re lucky to experience all four seasons here in Montana, we can’t help but eagerly anticipate summer. After all, nothing tops the Treasure State when it’s bathed in sunshine. And just before summer’s official start date, you can head to Billings and greet it a little early at the annual Strawberry Festival.
The Strawberry Festival is a time honored tradition in Billings that always takes place on the second Saturday of June on the streets of downtown Billings.
This year's festival will be June 8.
Strawberry season starts in early June in Montana, so it's the perfect time to celebrate.
