For one amazing weekend in June, Great Falls will host amazing events that will help you kick off summer and enjoy the great outdoors.

The Beer & Gear Festival, June 8-9, is Montana’s premiere craft brew fest and outdoor expo. Chat with brewers from across the state while tasting great Montana microbrews and enjoy live music. Vote for your favorite microbrew, with the winner taking home bragging rights!

At the outdoor expo, check out the outdoor-themed merchandise you’ll need to enjoy your outdoor adventure this year!

Saturday morning, experience one of Montana’s largest Farmer’s Market in Downtown Great Falls. Get farm-fresh produce, hand-made gifts, and food-truck fare.

Grab your bike and head to Black Eagle Park for the Beyond the Dam bike ride, an epic ride that takes you over 2 dams on the Missouri River; normally these access points are closed to the public, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ferry across the Mighty Mo!

After the bike ride, switch gears and see classic cars at the Fords Forever Car show brought to you by the Treasure State Mustang Club. You’ll meet gear heads from around the region that are passionate about their classic cars.

Live music abounds in Great Falls on Saturday, and whether you’re in the mood for rock & roll, blues, or something else, you’ll have plenty of options.


Sunday morning, enjoy a live music brunch at the Celtic Cowboy to fuel up for your next adventure.

Join Race MT at Gibson Park for a 5k obstacle race along the River’s Edge Trail.
