While no pre-registration is needed for the parade, we’d love to hear from you if you plan on participating, and hope that there will be support from spectators along the traditional route from the Big Sky Community Park to the Town Center.
10:00am The Country Fair Parade Commences
This year’s Grand Marshal will be our Community Award winners: Outlaw Partners and The Arts Council of Big Sky. Come on out and show them your support!
Artisans and Crafters open their booths to the public. Tasty morsels and refreshing beverages will be served, live music, an imagination station with crafts (for those of us wanting to tap into our creative side amidst the inspiration), climbing wall, inflatable jumping Castle and live animals.
There are three great musical acts lined up for the day, gracing the Town Center Pavilion stage from 10:30 until 5 p.m.
Local favorite bluegrass trio Bluebird Sky will kick off the day with some of their acoustic sounds on guitar and mandolin.
Chase McBride, a Montana native and accomplished 3rd generation musician was based out of California during his college days and northwestern national tour but is now back to his roots here in Big Sky Country, coming to the us as a soulful, funky folk trio with tunes that are sure to make you want to shake your groove thing.
Paperbird, from Boulder, Colorado, is an indie-pop bluegrass group that mixes banjo, trombone, and a host of other instruments in their eight-piece band to create a vintage sound.[dcs_img width=”300″ height=”270″ thumb=”true” framed=”black”
