It's clear that a lot of thought and care went into the (most excellent) 2022 Sweet Pea Festival music lineup. From the funk of Black Joe Lewis to the dramatic layers of DeVotchKa, Lindley Park in Bozeman will be the cultural hub of southwest Montana the first week of August.

The actual festival dates for 2022 are Friday, August 5th through Sunday, August 7th in Lindley Park on East Main Street in Bozeman. However, there are Sweet Pea-related events all week long leading up to the festival.

What is the history behind the Sweet Pea Festival? If you're new to this Bozeman tradition, the Museum of the Rockies put together a cool video to explain the OLDER story of the festival.
