In Billings, outsiders are welcome to let their adventurous spirit run free around Montana’s largest city. But being an outsider doesn’t mean missing the inside scoop on local events that let you explore like a local.
In 2024, join us in Billings to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Yellowstone Art Museum (YAM) and discover the rich heritage of the region. Founded in 1964 to focus on contemporary, avant garde work originating in the northern Rockies region, the museum collects art from all historic periods, emphasizing artists working in Montana and the American Northwest. Notably, the YAM is home to the largest gathering of drawings, paintings, books and memorabilia of cowboy illustrator Will James, whose work depicts the day-to-day life of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
And don’t miss annual favorites like Montana Fair, where you can immerse yourself in authentic Billings culture complete with rodeo competitions, popular country music and more. Or check out Burn the Point – a Labor Day weekend celebration of 1950s Americana, big muscle cars and pop music that are the hallmark of an iconic generation.
