2018 Depot Festival of the Arts: Monday July 2, 10:00-6:00 PM Tuesday July 3, 10:00-6:00 PM Wednesday July 4, 10:00-5:00 PM
The 2018 Livingston Depot Center's Festival of the Arts will be held in the Depot Rotary Park, on West Park Street (next to the Depot Center) in downtown Livingston, Montana. The festival is a juried show and open to artisans in all media of arts and crafts. Coinciding with both the popular Livingston Roundup rodeo and the downtown parade, this highly popular event assembles over 100 skilled artists and crafts people each year and attracts many thousands of enthusiasts. Livingston non-profit groups also offer specialty foods, - not excepting the Depot Foundation's own famed and acclaimed pie booth, featuring home cooking's best.
It's a fun and lively event with a very impressive collection of fine art and craft talent from around the entire Western region each year, spanning photography, painting, sculpture, woodworking, metal and blacksmithing, jewelry, furniture, glass, fiber arts, drawings and prints, ceramics, and more (and a great early start on holiday and birthday gifts too), so be sure not to miss it.
While attending, please remember pets are not allowed, and if you have a service animal, it must be kept on a leash. Pet waste must be picked up promptly and disposed of properly, per city regulations, which are enforced, so please be considerate towards artists and our city.
Vendors are typically sent applications for this juried show out toward mid-to-late March and make their plans well in advance to present their best, so it's a worthy happening. If you'd like to see a list of past show prize winners, click here.
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, -- and as noted, its own professional rodeo and downtown July 4th parade with fireworks after every evening's events. It's a lively weekend -- and outstanding art and pies in a pretty park next to a great museum, real trains, and the Northern Rockies really round it out.
