Big Sky Country Fair honors Montana fair tradition
MONTANA LIVING — Sure, it's still spring (almost) but it's time to start thinking about what you're going to enter in in Gallatin County Fair.
These events range from the much-loved Barnyard Brawl (think Calf Scramble, Mutton Bustin' and more), the Bozeman Roundup Ranch Rodeo, and the traditional competitive exhibits with new divisions.
Open Class Competitions in horticulture, photography, fine arts and quilts - to name a few - are a mainstay in Fair programming and connect directly to the cultural landscape of the region.
The Big Sky Country State Fair offers new divisions and classes at this year's Montana fair.
For creative folks, the Creative Arts Division has a new High School Related Projects Division and Digital Arts Division for both youth and adults, new classes include leather and metalwork classes.
There is also a place for down home cooking — and brewing. The fair's Culinary Division has a new Healthy Baked Goods Division, Homemade Beer and Wine Division, with all new themed classes this year! Horticulture Division added new classes including Kale, Berries, Cilantro, Petunia, Flavored Basil, Themed Classes, Edible Landscape and Team Container Grown Plants. There is even a photography Division added a new Wedding Photography Division along with a Videography Division. The Big Sky Country State Fair is also taking Digital Photography entries this year.
