Welcome to Summerfest!
Friday, April 29, 2016
This year’s Summerfest, Friday July 15, 2016 will be a full afternoon and evening of Montana music and family-friendly festivities along the Yellowstone River, focusing this event on our community and roots, with local vendors and Montana talent. We will have three bands, with Western Skies performing to start off the festival from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Next, Bus Driver Tour will take the stage from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, and The Max will headline from 8 pm to 10 pm. Kids events start at 2 pm and go until close.
Summerfest began as, and still is, a fundraising event for the Livingtson Recreation Department, which helps to provide our small community with many events, including gymnastics, youth and adult basketball, adult volleyball, indoor soccer, pickleball, aerobic workouts, open gym, tot time, open walking, as well as programming at the City pool like swimming lessons, water aerobics, and lap swim, summer and winter camps, and more. Indeed, the Livingston Recreation Department has a constant stream of activities. Due to a financial loss from Summerfest in 2015, we are working hard for you to revamp this event to get it back to its community roots and true to its mission. This event is for you, and the proceeds are for you directly by supporting Recreational programming.
In the past, ticket cost was cited as a reason people did not attend. By restructuring Summerfest the way we have, we are excited to be able to offer the event for a $5 minimum donation per ticket! Kids 3 and under are admitted free! We look forward to seeing you this summer!
Livingston's 17th annual outdoor music festival will be held July 15th, 2016 in Livingston, Montana's beautiful Sacajawea Park, bordered by the majestic Yellowstone River. Music plays from morning til night, so come and dance under the stars!
Summerfest has proven to be one of the highlights of the summer in Livingston, Montana. For the past 16 years Summerfest has continued to grow and bring friends and families together for a weekend of music, food and crafts in the park. It has been very popular for class and family reunions.
Summerfest continues to be a family oriented event with the proceeds going back to the community in the form of an expanded recreation department. Last year some of the profits were used for band shell repairs, roller skates, shelving for the skates, and gymnastic equipment. (New free and reduced rate programs have been developed also).
