  • Firework Shows in and Around Bozeman

    Each year the Gallatin County Fairgrounds puts on a firework show right around dusk on the 4th of July. The firework spectacle at the Fairgrounds is visible from nearly everywhere in Bozeman, but the best viewing locations are up high at places like Peet's Hill, the Dinosaur Park or even your roof if it is safe to climb on! Be sure to tune your radio dial to XL Country 100.7 for patriotic music in sync with the fireworks

    Belgrade also does a firework show for our friends to the West!

    Livingston has what they say is the Biggest firework show/festival in the Valley! The firework show is scheduled for July 4th after the rodeo.

  • Floating the River

    Both the Madison River and the Jefferson River are great rivers for relaxing and floating around Bozeman. They are popular 4th of July locations for everyone in the valley trying to beat the heat.

    There are shuttles going to and from the Madison River floating location provided by Montana Whitewater in Bozeman at 11th and Main.
