Plan your Trip

Montana Events

Yellowstone National Park is a vacation destination in and of itself. But the world north of the park—Montana’s Yellowstone Country—is home to thriving towns and communities alive with celebrations of the good life and the pulse of the region like concerts, art walks, festivals, book readings, performing arts and farmers markets.

Plan your Yellowstone getaway around a brew festival or an outdoor concert. Take advantage of the nightlife in our basecamp towns after a day in the park. Check out our calendar of events to see what’s happening while you’re here.
