DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN ASSOCIATION
The Downtown Bozeman Association presents the 16th annual Music on Main summer concert series in historic downtown Bozeman.
Thursday evenings from June 30 to Aug. 18, attendees can enjoy free music on Main Street between Rouse and Black avenues from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The Clintons, a longtime local favorite band, will kick off the first concert on June 30. The Clintons started in 1999 at a frat party on the upper floor of the Story Mansion in Bozeman. Since then, they’ve played almost 1,000 shows and toured the western half of the U.S., sharing the stage with acts like Dierks Bentley, Barenaked Ladies, Blackhawk and the Kentucky Headhunters.
The “Kids’ Zone” on South Bozeman Avenue will keep kids entertained from 6:30-8 p.m. with bouncy houses, face painting and hula hooping.
Grab a bite to eat from one of the food vendors, stop by some of the local non-profit booths, or step into a few of the downtown stores that stay open late before or after checking out the live music.
Stop by the City of Bozeman’s water bottle fill station parked each week on the side of First Security Bank to fill your reusable water bottle for free.
The DBA, the City of Bozeman and the Bozeman Police Department would also like to inform the public of the rules and regulations regarding open containers for Music on Main.
An open container waiver will allow anyone over the age of 21 to have an open container of alcohol in the event area during the Music on Main event from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday nights from June 30 to Aug. 18 only. Anyone with an open container outside these perimeters will be subject to a $100 open container ticket.
Dogs, coolers, and glass and aluminum containers are not allowed in the event area. Music on Main is now a smoke- and vapor-free event; smoking is only allowed in designated areas outside the event.
Music on Main is a free community event hosted by the Downtown Bozeman Association and nearly 100 percent funded by business sponsorships.
