Recreation is what Big Sky is all about. It’s what drew the first outdoor enthusiasts here in the early 1970s, and what still brings folks out today for vacations and well-rounded living.

Big Sky Professional Bull Riding - July 30

  • Time: July 30 to July 31
  • Location: Town Center
  • Contact: Outlaw Partners
  • Phone: (406) 995-2055
  • Website: http://www.theoutlawpartners.com/
  • Details:

    The Big Sky PBR was voted event of the year by bull riders for the 2013 run, and we are looking forward to an even bigger and better year.

    The Annual PBR is a two day event of professional bull riding and supporting activities. The rodeo hosts numerous big name athletes and bulls from around the world. The cowboys attempt to ride the bulls for 8 seconds, while being judged for their style and difficulty of the ride. A Calcutta is hosted the evening before the event, along with a band and dancing, to give the spectators an additional way to be a part of the adventure.

    The outdoor arena is built specifically for the event, with the Spanish Peaks and Lone Mountain as the backdrop for the bucking bulls. Local artisans and food/drink vendors add to the festivities and the Mutton-Busting competition gives the kids a fun way to be part of the action. The community side of the event is truly exhibited by the participating non-profits, which all benefit from proceeds of the event to keep the dream alive and well in Big Sky. Lodging specials are available July 31 and August 1 for this spectacular event.

Crail Ranch "Barn Raising" and Potluck - August 3

  • Time: 12:00pm
  • Location: Historic Crail Ranch
  • Contact: Historic Crail Ranch Museum
  • Phone: 406-993-2112
  • Website: http://www.crailranch.org/
  • Details:

    A “barn raising” is a community effort to build a barn for a community member’s farm or ranch.  Barn raisings were common in the 18th and 19th century.  After the barn was built, the community would celebrate with a potluck meal.

    We don’t know for sure if the Crails ever held a traditional barn raising for any of the many structures that they built on the Crail Ranch. And, truth is, we really don’t need help banging nails and raising timbers. But we do need help celebrating the arrival of the first new building on the Crail property in more than 70 years. We’ll have good food, boring (but short) speeches, and old-fashioned barn-raising music.  Bring the whole family and your friends to Crail Ranch on Spotted Elk Road, Sunday, August 3, noon to 3PM.  And bring your favorite potluck dish.

    Set-ups, beer/wine/soft drinks provided.
