33rd annual Livingston Depot Festival of the Arts, July 2, 3, & 4: Fine art, crafts, food, fun
The Depot Festival of the Arts is back! The Livingston Depot will host its 33rd annual Festival of the Arts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 2021. Festival hours are from 10 to 6 on the 2nd and 3rd, and from 10 to 5 on the 4th.
The Festival showcases fine artists and crafters from Montana and the western region into the juried show. Past and new vendors will present oil paintings, photography, woodwork, ceramics, jewelry, iron, apparel, repurposed antiques, stained glass, herbals, toys, and more. Some artisans will be doing onsite demonstrations. The Depot has limited the number of artists this year in order to provide more space for all visitors.
“We are so grateful to be able to host the Festival of the Arts again,” said Depot director Laura Cota. “The Festival is so much fun and a great way to support local artists. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Depot-Rotary Park. We ask that artists and guests do their part to keep the community safe and healthy.”
The event also includes a variety of food vendors like Indian tacos, fresh-popped kettle corn, chocolates, specialty lemonades, flavored ices, and more.
Visitors can also enjoy the adjacent Depot Museum’s historic rail and Yellowstone exhibits, as well as this year’s special exhibit, “Invisible Boundaries,” a groundbreaking multimedia presentation curated by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Cody, Wyoming. This stunning multi-media experience uses art, science, cartography and multimedia to delve into the challenges and triumphs of herds as they cross geographic, cultural, ecological, and political boundaries.
The Depot Festival of the Arts is a fun opportunity to stroll in the summer air and enjoy food, pies, art, and friends at a central Livingston attraction during the famous Fourth of July celebration.
The Depot Museum exhibits are open Monday through Saturday from 10 to 5 with a nominal admission. Group tours are also welcome, and more information is available through the Depot office at (406) 222-2300 or its website, www.livingstondepot.org.
