Livingston, a historic Northern Pacific Railroad community and the original gateway to Yellowstone National Park, is today a major center for summer recreation activities including fishing, floating, rafting, camping, and hiking. Also on July 2, 3, and 4 every year, Livingston has its own professional rodeo, the Livingston Roundup, complete with a downtown parade on the 2nd and fireworks after every evening's events.  It's a lively weekend -- but outstanding art and pies in a pretty park between trains and the Northern Rockies really round it out.



The Livingston Depot Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of residents of Livingston and surrounding, communities, and tourists to the Yellowstone area by (1) restoring, preserving and protecting the historic Northern Pacific depot, now a community cultural center--The Livingston Depot Center; (2) presenting and promoting the visual and performing arts, culture, history of the Yellowstone Region, and educational programs in the arts and humanities; and (3) promoting community involvement, tourism and economic development through the operation and use of the Livingston Depot Center
