Summer Events in Missouri River Country

There is not enough that we can say about summer in Montana, and we have a feeling that 2022 is going to be pretty epic. Missouri River Country the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine: take in stunning vast landscapes, drive the scenic route to charming small and authentically Western small towns, and enjoy the show that our big skies put on during the day and more so during the night-- we are talking pristine dark skies unlike nearly anywhere else in the lower 48. This summer, plan the trip you've always dreamed of by making your way to Northeast Montana where there is more room to roam and more places to get lost.Here are some of our top picks for events in our region for the summer of 2022, but you can browse more on our events calendar.
