Chokecherry Capital of Montana

The first Saturday after Labor Day, central Montana ushers in the return of fall with the annual Chokecherry Festival.  The festival is attended by more than 5,000 people from near and far, enjoying the event and soaking up the beautiful scenery of central Montana.  It's a time of wholesome fun for everyone from tiny tykes to Grandpas.


The Chokecherry

The Chokecherry, a small, maroon-colored fruit with a puckery taste grows wild in Montana. The plants begin to bloom in June and the fruit ripens in August. The reddish fruits are used in making syrups, jams, jellies, wines and many other culinary treats.

Kiwanis Club Pancake Breakfast

The day begins with the Kiwanis Club serving an outdoor pancake breakfast (tentative) on Main Street and Second Avenue, complete with pancakes, bacon, sausage and of course, chokecherry syrup!


Something For Everyone!

Complete with children's activities and live entertainment, the day is packed with opportunities for food and fun! Main street is literally lined with arts & crafts booths and food vendors offering a variety of gifts, baked goods, fresh garden fare, raffles and much more.

We hope you join us!

Take a walk down our historic Main Street and experience the hospitality of the area.
Don't leave until you've tried all of the food, enjoyed the entertainment, bought all you can carry.
