Exciting and Unexpected Events in Downtown Bozeman!

    When most people think of Montana they think of small towns where everybody knows everybody. They think of big open skies and mountains that take your breath away. When people think of activities Montanans enjoy they picture fishing and hunting before anything else, then they probably think of mudding and shooting and tailgating. Even if you offer the name of one of Montana’s cities, people still probably think of rodeos and cowboy hats and shotgunning beers on our tailgates. However, Bozeman is so much more than a compilation of Montana stereotypes. Bozeman is a breathtaking crossroads of diversity and change. And with so much inspiration around us, it shouldn’t be surprising that Bozeman’s art scene is stunning.
