Great Bear Festival

The Daybreak and Noon Rotary Clubs of Kalispell, Montana are excited to announce its 6th annual Great Bear Festival. On Saturday, August 5th in Depot Park local residents and tourists will have the opportunity to taste local and regional beers, wines, and hard ciders. Local food vendors will also be on hand offering a variety of culinary delights while local bands, Flat Black and The Music Lab, entertain throughout the event. The Great Bear Festival will have something for everyone.

If enjoying a beautiful day and evening in downtown Kalispell wasn’t enough, all proceeds from the Great Bear Festival will go to support local and international organizations. Both Rotary Clubs actively participate in creating a better community in the Flathead Valley and globally.
