April Events In Bozeman

In Bozeman, the transition from winter to spring is seamless with events that help ease the inevitable spring fever. From inspiring talks and high caliber theater, to rowdy rodeos and ski hill shenanigans, April is a month to look forward to!


Spring Cycling, Yellowstone National Park

Early April

Each year when the snow melts in the lower elevations, Yellowstone National Park opens the roads for bicyclists. The beauty and serenity of the park is amplified when you’re biking, unencumbered by autos and people. Wildlife, however, still roam the roads so keep your eye out!


Captain Scott Kelly

April 4th at The Brick Breeden Fieldhouse

America’s first year-round astronaut, Captain Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko spent a year in space conducting experiments, reconfiguring station modules and giving rare insight through live interviews and never-seen-before photos from the International Space Station. Kelly will bring stories of his space travel experiences and their relationship to discovery, leadership and perseverance. An inspirational evening is sure to ensue.


Bozeman Winter Farmers’ Market

April 6th & 20th at The Emerson Cultural Center

While the market continued throughout the winter, the spring offerings begin in April. In addition to local meats, fermented foods, baked goods, honey, jams and natural body products, you’ll start to see fresh greens and herbs come on the scene— perfect for lightening up your meals after a cold winter!


Bridger Bowl Closing Day

April 8th at Bridger Bowl

Get the last of the season’s spring turns in! It’s been a great winter and we suggest sending it out in style with a weekend at Bridger Bowl. Wrap it up by swapping stories, and sharing good food and libations at Jimmy B’s Bar and Grill, or Faceshots, both located on the mountain.


Montana State University Spring Rodeo

The six time Tony award winning musical comedy, Company, plays in April at the historic Ellen Theatre. The talented local cast brings to light the challenges of modern adult relationships.

Big Sky Resort Pond Skim

April 20th at Big Sky Resort

The ski season lasts a little longer at Big Sky Resort, perfect for spring skiing and of course, Pond Skim! This end-of-season tradition involves skiers and snowboarders of all ages, as they cruise down the hill and attempt to skim across ice cold ponds! Donned in costumes and ready for a good time, you’ll love the spirit of the event. (Not to mention the laughs!)


Intermountain Opera presents, Eugene Onegin

April 26th & 28th at The Willson Auditorium

Tchaikovsky’s monumental Russian opera portrays romance and jealousy amidst an aristocratic lifestyle. You’ll be transported to sparkling ballrooms and lush country estates where the old practice of duels still existed and could be easily prompted by none other than love itself.
