One of the most enjoyed parts of the Bozeman Summer is BACK: The 2021 Sweet Pea Festival is happening August 3rd through August 8th, 2021. This will be Sweet Pea's 44th year celebrating the arts.

The main dates of the 2021 Festival are August 6th, through August 8th, although there are several peripheral event dates for festival-related stuff!

Further details will be shared soon, but we're thrilled to share this news. The Sweet Pea Festival large-scale events were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 but THEY'RE BACK IN 2021!!
