The Montana Folk Festival is an unmissable free event held on July 12-14 in Butte with more than 300 performers, artists and food vendors. The festival is held on six stages underneath many of Butte’s iconic headframes which are remnants from its mining days and has views overlooking Silver Bow Valley. Stages include a dance pavilion for everyone to dance, a family stage with performances for children, and a Montana folklife stage. 2019 is set to be a fantastic year with performances from dynamic tap dancer Jason Samuels Smith, Western swing singer Carolyn Martin, reggae musician group Taj Weekes and Adowa, and energetic bluegrass band David Davis and the Warrior River Boys. There will also be traditional artists with unique craft stalls, as well as many food vendors serving ethnic food that represents a range of different cultures in the region.
