Summerfair is the region’s largest arts and crafts festival—an annual summer event featuring some of the best artisans, craftspeople, and entertainers in the area. This exciting event attracts more than 10,000 people and is a wonderful way to share the joy of art with friends and family. Hosted by the Yellowstone Art Museum, Summerfair is one of the largest annual fundraising events for the Museum’s education programs and yearly operating costs. More than 100 artists, community groups, and food vendors will participate every year. Artist booths at Summerfair include painting, pottery, art from nature, glass, wood, metal, fiber art, photography, body products, and artisan foods. Summerfair is a great place to find that unique gift for yourself or someone special while supporting the Billings Community.  Learn about art with hands-on art activities both Saturday and Sunday in the fun, free art projects under the Children’s Art Activity Tent. See artist demonstrations and entertainment throughout the weekend.
