There are many exciting trails in Billings, Montana. One of the most beloved among visitors and locals alike is the Billings Brew Trail. The only walkable craft beverage trail in Montana, the Billings Brew Trail treats hikers to 1.5 miles of custom libations from six breweries, two distilleries and a cider mill. And that’s just the downtown section of the trail.

Nothing goes better with a cool one than some seasonal celebration. As luck would have it, this year marks the 40th anniversary of Billings’ St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Join us at Montana’s Trailhead on March 17 to celebrate all things Irish. Honor St. Patty as dozens of floats march through historic downtown, and then sample some of the best the Billings Brew Trail has to offer (which may or may not be dyed green for the occasion).

In Billings, the party goes on all year. The Alive After 5 (AA5) outside concert series was started in 2003 by a group of downtown restaurant and property owners. Over the years, the idea grew from five concerts each summer to, at its biggest, 14 shows. In 2023 – to celebrate AA5’s 20th anniversary – there will be another amazing concert series through summer.
