What to do in Bozeman, 7/30 - 8/5

Bite of Bozeman
Where:  Downtown Bozeman
When:  WEDNESDAY (7/30) 6 - 8 p.m.
Why: Organizers say that over 40 food and beverage businesses will be vending their offerings, and entertainment will be available "on every corner." Seems like half of Bozeman turns out for this event every year, and we're not gonna miss the people-watching, no sir.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

MUSIC at the 2014 Sweet Pea Festival
Where:  Lindley Park
When:  FRIDAY (8/1) through SUNDAY (8/3) 
Why:  Best line-up we've seen at the Sweet Pea in, like, ever. Starting at 8 p.m. Friday night with Reckless Kelly, then there's the opera on Saturday afternoon and The White Buffalo at 8 p.m. that night, capped off with Hayes Carll at 3 p.m. on Sunday, plus a whole string of musical goodies—interrupted by Tater-pig feedings—to keep us hopping. Gonna be great. 
 
 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2014 Bozeman Stampede
Where: Gallatin County Fairgrounds
When:  FRIDAY (8/1) and SATURDAY (8/2), starts at 7 p.m.
Why:  The two-day event, sanctioned by the NRA, is scheduled Friday and Saturday nights. Ellie Staley at the Downtown Business Partnership—someone who has her pick of Bozeman events—said last year's Stampede was a blast. We'll be there, with 'kickers on.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAMILY -- Sweet Pea Parade
Where:  Downtown Bozeman
When:  SATURDAY (8/2), starts at 10 a.m.
Why:  The theme for 2014 is Create a Dream... which scores negative points on our unofficial lame scale from 1 to 10, but the Sweet Pea's is probably the town's best parade, and some say it ranks high among all the parades in dear ol' Montana.
 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

S.L.A.M. (Support Local Artists and Musicians) Festival
Where:  Downtown Bozeman
When:  SATURDAY (8/2), starts at 10 a.m.
Why:  They're saying again this year that the S.L.A.M. festival has nothing to do with that other art festival, just over there in that other downtown park. Doesn't really matter, they put on a friendly event, with a bunch of talented local artists, and they've got the Montana beer garden. Endearing, really, no matter what its genesis.   
 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

And "the smartest thing you can do in Bozeman this week" is:  

PRESENTATION -- The Civil War in a Bottle: The Battle of Fayetteville, Arkansas, April 18, 1863
Where:  Bozeman Public Library
When: THURSDAY (7/31) at 7 p.m.     
Why:  What they tell us: "This year marks the Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War and the Library is offering a series of lectures on the War beginning July 31. MSU Professor and University Archivist, Kim Allen Scott’s topic will be “The Civil War in a Bottle: The Battle of Fayetteville, Arkansas, April 18, 1863.” This small, insignificant battle was a microcosm of the war itself, with tactical and strategic features that neatly illustrate how the greater war was conducted." FREE.
