Legendary Downtown Bozeman Winter Crazy Days Shopping This Weekend
Who doesn't love getting cool stuff at bargain prices? Twice a year, downtown Bozeman holds a Crazy Days Weekend - one in the summer and one in the winter. I'd argue that the Winter Crazy Days holds the biggest bargains, especially if you're into outdoor gear.
The downtown Bozeman Winter Crazy Days sale is happening this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - February 17th through the 19th, 2023. It's three big days of clearance sales at almost every downtown business. Inside the stores and (usually) out on the sidewalks, there will be bargains galore. Crazy days will happen rain, snow, or shine.
Retailers, shops, galleries, restaurants, bars, and coffee shops all generally participate in Crazy Days with clearance sales, special deals, and promotions. You might have your eye on a pair of clearance skis, then end up with some art, running shoes, and lunch for two.
It's obviously free to attend - all you have to do is head downtown and shop at your leisure. The DBA expects many dozens of businesses to participate, not just on Main Street but the surrounding area. PRO TIP: Check the socials of your favorite shops in downtown to see what they're deals are in advance or if they're doing giveaways.
Winter Crazy Days Weekend is the perfect time for downtown stores to clear out merchandise to make room for new spring and summer stuff. Don't be surprised to see 75% off tables and racks - some stores mean business to clear product out. Non retailers like the restaurants and bars participate too - watch for Crazy Days Weekend specials on sandwich boards or on their socials.
We like to make a day of it with a friend or two. Start a bit early if either one of us has something specific we're trying to score on sale. Grab a good lunch at one of our favorite restaurants (and maybe a quick drink), then scour more clearance until we're pooped. You've got all weekend, so enjoy the best of downtown at bargain prices.
