Description

The Montana Folk Festival is the Northwest's largest free outdoor music festival. The Folk Festival features performances and demonstrations by over 200 of the nation’s finest musicians, dancers and craftspeople.

It will feature more than 20 Artists/groups on six stages including a dance pavilion dedicated to participatory dancing, a family stage with performances appealing to children of all ages, and a Montana folklife stage.

In addition to the performance stages, there are several themed festival areas: the Montana Folklife Area, the Family Area, two Festival Marketplaces and the Festival Food Courts.  The festival site will be situated in the heart of the nation's largest National Historic Landmark District.

Open air and tented sites will provide a variety of performance venues ranging from intimate stages to amphitheater-sized venues. The Original Stage, which offers a panoramic view of Butte's historic high rise buildings and the surrounding mountains, is located on the site of the historic Original Mineyard, with its dramatic headframe that is a remnant of Butte’s early days as an underground copper mining center.
