Early access Sweet Pea wristbands available at discount ahead of event
The Sweet Pea Festival returns to the Bozeman area for its 2022 event, Friday to Sunday, August 5th–7th in celebration of its 45th year.
Sweet Pea is a three-day festival of the arts held the first weekend in August. The Festival kicks off late Friday afternoon in Lindley Park with a performance by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks. Saturday ramps up with a children’s run and parade that lead the community to the park where the festivities continue through Sunday evening. Weekend entertainment comes in many forms – music of all genres, performances by local theatre and dance troupes, workshops, family friendly entertainment and activities, a flower show, a beer and wine garden featuring Montana microbrews, and countless arts and crafts vendors to stroll through and purchase unique gifts for yourself, family and friends.
The week leading up to the Festival offers additional fun-filled, community events. Artists of all skill levels converge on Main Street for ‘Chalk on the Walk’ Tuesday morning. On Wednesday evening, local restaurants line Main Street to offer up samples of their fare, while musicians entertain, during the ever popular ‘Bite of Bozeman.’ The Sweet Pea Art Show will be on display at the ERA Landmark Downtown Visitor’s Center as well.
And of course, one of the biggest draws of Sweet Pea is the live music! This year’s slate will include headlining performances by DeVotchKa, Railroad Earth and Houndmouth. Also appearing will be Bozeman Symphony, Matt Walin & His Nervous Breakdown, Kiltro, Kaleta & Super Yamba Band, Black Joe Lewis, STiLGONE and Amanda Anne Platt & the Honeycutters.
