The Sweet Pea Festival, in its 37th year, is Bozeman’s summer celebration of the arts. This year’s Festival dates are August 1, 2 and 3. The Festival in Lindley Park includes music, children’s activities, dance, theatre, arts and crafts, food concessions and more. Preliminary events begin July 29th and include Chalk on the Walk, an art show, the Bite of Bozeman, a parade, and children’s run.

The Sweet Pea Festival is a three-day festival of the arts held in Bozeman, Montana, since 1978. The event includes everything from dynamic performances to children’s activities to a flower show. Sweet Pea is committed to its mission statement of “promoting and cultivating the arts.”

Hundreds of volunteers run and organize this annual event, a testament to the community’s desire for its ongoing success. All the money raised above what is needed to operate the Festival is given back to the community in the form of grants for the arts, art education, and special projects in the Bozeman area.
