The start of summer each year has a funny way of reminding you just how much you’ve missed it.

It has a way making where you live feel more alive. To the point where just having a roof over your head will give you FOMO.

Luckily, we don’t have that problem seeing as we don’t have a roof just yet.

Joking aside, the summer season is the best season here in Bozeman.

We fully encourage everyone in town to get out and experience Bozeman when it has its best foot forward.

To sweeten the deal, there are a ton of local events that are sure make your summer experience even more awesome.

Music on Main

Music on Main is one of the summer’s primo event series.

The summer’s premier downtown music series, Music on Main just started last Thursday, and will be happening every Thursday until August 30.

Live music from local artists, family fun, and a whole lot of good food and drink.

Get outside, bring the kids, and support local artists. What’s not to love?

Bozeman Art Walks

Speaking of local artists, Bozeman Art Walks are also happening multiple times this summer.

Think Music on Main, but with art, sculpture, fashion, jewelry, and all sorts of other assorted crafts on display.

S.L.A.M. Festival

A festival with a mission very near and dear to our hearts, the Support Local Artists & Musicians (S.L.A.M.) Festival is happening on August 5 & 6 in Bogert Park.

Amazing art, culinary offerings, artist demonstrations, and a libations garden for the 21 and over crowd.

Rockin’ the Rivers

Sometimes you just need to get outside and rock.

Enter, Rockin’ the Rivers, a three-day outdoor rock ‘n’ roll music festival from August 11-13 that has been the pinnacle of awesome for many a summer-bound Bozemanite with an inclination toward headbanging.

See for yourself.

It’s going to a be fantastic summer, friends. Bring it on.
