14th-anniversary Issue of Bozeman Magazine
168 and Counting
Welcome to the June 2021 issue of Bozeman Magazine. We began publishing fourteen years ago this month and have produced 168 issues featuring local artists and contributing writers to bring an informative and hyper-local publication to our community. We see it as our gift to you; we sincerely hope you learn something, connect to someone and engage in our community in a new way because of it.
Our theme for the year is Iconic, and for this issue in particular we have chosen topics that deserve veneration and that are our area’s best-kept secrets, with a strong emphasis on events before they happen as we enter back into a post-pandemic new normal.
In this issue, you will find Bozeman-based Montana Shakespeare in the Parks, with a nearly fifty-year tradition of bringing live theatre to mostly rural and underserved communities. We have also included a summer music mix of musical events happening in our area this summer, with enough time for you to learn about them and then makes plans to enjoy them. Two local band CD-release articles to help you get to know your local artists and musicians as they work to produce new music and gigs in our community. Moving from music to art, this issue features the Bozeman Art Museum, which opened during the pandemic and offers free admission to all. Never to be forgotten, Bozeman Magazine and the Gallatin History Museum have an iconic relationship that allows us to pass on the history of our area to you each month; Bozeman’s best-kept secrets can be found within the walls of the GHM! This month’s Top 10 List features one of Bozeman’s iconic topics - fishing - with ten secrets for a successful fishing trip. After a day on the river, a stop at Montana’s first kombucha bar would be a good way to enliven your taste buds; Dean’s Zesty Booch is our dining interview this month. Also included are a couple of history-in-the-making articles in this issue as well, with our local real estate market update from Realtor Tim Ford, as well as a fundraiser for year-round ice at the Fairgrounds. Gallatin Ice is making their mark as a Bozeman icon.
We pride ourselves on having the biggest, best and most accurate events calendar in the area both in print and online at bozemagazine.com/ Events can be added any time for FREE. We encourage you to get your events seen with us and help them succeed! You will find June and early July events in print at the end of the magazine. Of course, events are due to change or cancelation due to unforeseen circumstances; check the online calendar for the most up-to-date information about events in our area (including addresses, maps, ticket info., and more).
