About the Event

The Sweet Pea Festival is a three-day festival of the arts held the first Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in August. The Festival kicks off late Friday afternoon in Lindley Park with a performance by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks and the opening of arts and crafts vendor booths; Saturday ramps up with a children's run and parade that lead the community to the park where the festivities continue through 7:00 p.m. on Sunday. Weekend entertainment comes in many forms – music of all genres, performances by local theatre and dance troupes, workshops, family-friendly entertainment and activities, a flower show, a beer and wine garden featuring Montana microbrews, and over 100 arts and crafts vendors to stroll through and purchase unique gifts for yourself, family, and friends.

The week leading up to the Festival offers additional fun-filled, community events. Artists of all skill levels converge on Main Street Tuesday morning for Chalk on the Walk. Wednesday evening local restaurants line Main Street to offer up samples of their fare, while musicians entertain, during the ever popular Bite of Bozeman, rock out on Thursday night at Music on Main - sponsored by Sweet Pea, and the Sweet Pea Art Show runs Juy 14 - September 1 at the Emerson Center.

Admission to events leading up to Festival weekend is free. Admission to the events in Lindley Park requires the purchase of an admission wristband.
