Top events in Montana
Thanks to its slow pace and remote location, Montana generally keeps a low profile; but it’s known in popular culture as the home of daredevil stunt performer Evel Knievel, the birthplace of actors Gary Cooper and Jeff Bridges, the inspiration for A River Runs Through It and the filming location of The Horse Whisperer.
Visit sleepy Martin City, near the west entrance to the Glacier National Park, for the annual Barstool Ski Races during February’s Cabin Fever Festival. Dating back almost forty years, this fun-packed event involves attaching your bar stool to a pair of skis and racing down the snowy slopes. In a similar goofy vein, the Annual Great Montana Sheep Drive involves hundreds of sheep running down the main drag of Reed Point, a small town on the Yellowstone River. It’s like Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls but without the sharp bits, and more proof that visitors to Montana should definitely bring their sense of humor.
