29th Annual Strawberry Festival

Located in the streets of downtown Billings, the Strawberry Festival is a long-time cherished community event that opens the summer season. In the heart of our urban center, experience rich diversity in arts and crafts, the scents of food-truck fare from Asian to BBQ, live street entertainment, over 90 merchants, live street entertainment, and a 60-foot long strawberry shortcake create by the Chefs and Cooks Association of Montana. With an interactive children’s area including free crafts and activities for all ages, this event draws people throughout the northwest region to Downtown Billings under Skypoint at 2nd Ave N. and Broadway.

COVID-19 UPDATE:
The 29th Annual Strawberry Festival scheduled to take place in downtown Billings under Skypoint at N. Broadway and 2nd Ave. N. on Saturday, June 6, 2020, is postponed. It is unlikely that large group gatherings will be allowable in time for the June date. The festival will be rescheduled, as of now, for Sunday, September 13, 2020, from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. The effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 has temporarily halted the anticipated spring and summer event season not just in our City and State but across the nation. The DBA is closely monitoring and adhering to the COVID-19 directives and recommendations from Montana State officials and the Yellowstone County Health Department.
We are just as devastated as many of you are that our spring and summer event season may not go on as scheduled. The September date is our best case scenario right now to be able to bring the 2020 Strawberry Festival to our community. With so much changing so quickly, we are remaining as flexible as we can and looking for ways to continue to bring fun downtown activities to our community, within the social distancing guidelines put in place by the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and in compliance with Governor Bullock’s phased approach to re-open the state.

If you have any questions or need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out through email at frontdesk@downtownbillings.com. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
