30th Annual Strawberry Festival

Located in the streets of downtown Billings, the Strawberry Festival is Billings largest street festival. This long-time cherished community event kicks off the summer event season. In the heart of our urban center, experience rich diversity in arts and crafts, the scents of food-truck fare from French Crepes, noodle bowls, to BBQ, over 90 merchants, live street entertainment, and pallets and pallets of fresh Montana sourced berries. The Strawberry festival returns with an interactive children’s area including and fun activities for all ages, this event draws people throughout the northwest region to Downtown Billings under Skypoint at 2nd Ave N. and Broadway.
New This Year:
- There will be a 50/50 raffle to fundraise for downtown public art projects.
- Entertainment at various locations within the festival street closure and not just under Skypoint.
- More berries… Merchants offering strawberry & berry products will have balloons so you can easily spot them.
- Multiple handwashing stations
- More spacing between merchant booths for more festival space and less crowding.
- The most up to date CDC public health recommendations will be encouraged for all in attendance (ie. mask wearing, social distancing, and washing hands often).
- No strawberry shortcake (we know this is sad, we hope it is able to return in the future!)
