Bozeman Events in July 2022

July hits and Bozeman-ites start running fast and hard to get in as much summer fun as possible! The month is packed with special events; long-standing favorites like the Big Sky Country State Fair, big-name musicians, and fun runs throughout the valley. From date night to family day, there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Fourth of July!

Kick off the month with a Fourth of July celebration. Start the day with an invigorating hike up the College ‘M’ or Drinking Horse trails. You’ll get a great view of the whole valley. Both trails are moderate, but if you’re feeling especially motivated, the ‘M’ has a steep route. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of Bozeman’s many restaurants, then perhaps take a little rest before the night gets going.

There are several fireworks stands around the area, although locals embrace this holiday with vigor, so all you'll need to do is find a nice spot, (try Peet's Hill) and you'll get a view of the whole town!

If you do like to light your own fireworks, city regulations are in effect for certain times:

  • July 3 and July 5, 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
  • July 4, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Fireworks are not allowed on major streets or within 300 feet of hospitals or healthcare facilities. You can find firework stands on Huffine Lane and Highway 85 headed south.
