These 5 Fantastic Street Fairs Will Show You The Best Of Montana
Street fairs and festivals give us a chance to get outside and spend some time with our fellow Montanans, usually bonding over something amazing like food, crafts or entertainment. The Treasure State has plenty of these gems every year, especially in the summer. These are a few of our favorites.
1. Alive After 5, Billings
This annual summer street festival takes over downtown Billings every Thursday from 5 - 8 and features food, drinks, and dancing to some great local bands. Nothing brings a community together quite like dancing in the streets.
2. Fort Benton Summer Celebration
Every year, the Birthplace of Montana celebrates summer's arrival with a parade, street dances, local art, and an impressive fireworks display. It's typically held on the first official weekend of summer (June 22-24).
3. Montana Folk Festival, Butte
Every July, this three day festival takes over the city of Butte. Aside from the amazing music, you'll find art, street dancing and plenty of delicious food.
4. Whitefish Arts Festival
From July 6-8, beautiful local art from local vendors will take over Depot Park. This will be its 39th year, and it's always amazing to see how much talent we have in our state.
5. Lewistown Chokecherry Festival
Every September, Lewistown's annual Chokecherry Festival takes over the city streets. Over 5,000 people come every year to enjoy live entertainment, cooking classes, a pit-spitting contest, and so much more.
We love festival season here in Montana. If you love food,
you won’t want to miss these.
