Downtown Winter Festival

We’re bringing some warmth downtown during the cold month of February with the first annual DOWNTOWN WINTER FESTIVAL!

Why February? Well, first off, Montanans don’t mind the cold, we all know that. Second, February is typically a slow time for downtown Helena and we want to better support our downtown businesses, local organizations, and the Helena community as a whole. So bundle up in your warmest layers for some great food, amazing deals, and awesome live music the weekend before Valentine’s Day.

DHI has partnered with various businesses and organizations across Helena for events running from Thursday, February 10th to Sunday, February 13th. We’ll be adding even more in the next few weeks, but check out the current schedule for now:
