It's the 40th year for the Sweet Pea Festival, scheduled for Aug 4-6, but the deadline to submit a design for this year's poster or T-shirt is this Friday!

The festival has grown greatly over the past 40 years, and to help commemorate that, this year's theme is "Back To Our Roots" (which could help give you a great design idea for the poster and/or T-shirt).

For the poster contest, the winner will get $1,000! For the T-shirt contest, the winning child's design (ages 5-13) will win $250 and a T-shirt with the winning design, and the winning adult's design (ages 14 and older) will win $1,000 and a T-shirt with the winning design. See last year's winning design. Get more details at SweetPeaFestival.org.

Of course, as usual, there will be the Art Show, Bite of Bozeman, Children's Run, Sweet Pea Run, Flower Show, and Parade, and if you buy your admission wristband in advance, you'll get a better deal. Get more info about all of it at SweetPeaFestival.org.
