You can't enjoy a Sweet Pea Festival without the actual Sweet Pea flowers, so festival organizers are giving out FREE packets of seeds this week! Don't forget to pick yours up.

HOW TO GET YOUR FREE SEED PACKET: Simply stop by the Sweet Pea Festival office in downtown Bozeman. It's located at 424 East Main Street, Suite 203B. The free seeds will be located just outside of their office door. Please take only one pack of seeds per person. We want to make sure as many people as possible receive free seeds!

Back in February, people got to participate in the 5th Annual Sweet Pea Festival Ice Carving Contest. It was an absolute blast to watch, and then the weather was cold enough to display the ice sculptures for many days. (They were lit up at night and were absolutely stunning, btw.)

WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE SWEET PEA FESTIVAL? They are looking for volunteers in several capacities for the 2021 Festival and events. (Even in 2020 with the Festival itself canceled, the organization held several events in a safe manner, and volunteers are always needed to make them happen.)

To get involved, you can perhaps join the Sweet Pea Festival board. They are currently looking for new board members and you can read about that HERE. If you'd like to volunteer in a different capacity, no problem! Call 586.4003 or email your name, phone number and what position you are interested in to: ed@sweetpeafestival.org, and they will get back to you!

The 2nd half of 2021 is looking to be filled with fun, as more and more folks get vaccinated and we get COVID-19 under control. Get involved and have some fun...with the great crew of the Sweet Pea Festival in Bozeman.
