The Sweet Pea Festival is an annual three-day festival of the arts in Bozeman, Montana, which starts on the first Friday in August following a week of community arts events.

The Sweet Pea Festival is committed to its mission statement of “promoting and cultivating the arts.” We strive to evaluate ourselves and create a new masterpiece for you each and every year. Our dedicated team of 400+ volunteers runs and organizes this event with a professionalism and generosity that shines through in each event. 

Sweet Pea is a non-profit organization. All the money raised above what is needed to operate the Festival is given back to the community in the form of grants for the arts, art education, arts organization sponsorship and special projects in the Bozeman area. Sweet Pea is run and organized by volunteers and is able to operate the Festival through its admission and merchandise sales. We welcome you and invite you to enjoy the next Sweet Pea, A Festival of the Arts! As you enjoy the event, consider joining us as a volunteer!
