2016 Summer Festivals in Bozeman, MT

Bozeman is a fantastic place to spend your summer! Whether you live here year-round, consider it your summer home, or are touring the state, we invite you to take part of the 2016 Summer Festivals in Bozeman, MT! From music, to plays, to craft shows and fresh food, the Gallatin Valley is home to some amazing family fun!

Sweet Pea Festival

Every year, the whole state of Montana looks forward to the annual Sweet Pea Festival! This year, the festival is scheduled for August 5-7, 2016! In 2013, this festival was voted in the Top 10 nationwide! Focusing on local arts, this festival kicks off with a children’s run, parade, and is full of music performances and plays by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks! It’s three days you definitely do not want to miss this summer.

Music on Main

While not technically a festival, Music on Main is a weekly event in Downtown Bozeman that showcases local musicians! With so many great pubs and restaurants, you can grab dinner and cocktails before heading out to listen to the music, or come early and grab a seat on one of the patios. Local police block off downtown for your safety and convenience, and local businesses stay open for your shopping pleasure. It’s a fantastic time for the whole family!

Crazy Days

If you are a true shopper, then a summer festival in Bozeman that you don’t want to miss is Crazy Days! Every year, downtown Bozeman small businesses open up their shops and offer incredible discounts! This year, Crazy Days will happen during the weekend of July 22nd! If you’re looking for ski jackets for the next season, or maybe Christmas shopping for that friend with unique tastes, Crazy Days is sure to help you find what you are looking for! Grab a lemonade, or have some lunch at the Co-Op, and spend a couple hours perusing and supporting our local businesses!

There is a lot to do in Bozeman year-round, but summer is especially fun. Take advantage of the weekly events, or come for a long weekend. Whatever you decide to do, Bozeman is the place to do it!
