The Bitterroot Valley is a vibrant scene of modern-day cultural events, western heritage, and Native American history. Summer weekends are jammed with things to do, from rodeos, fairs, and small-town parades to Scottish Games and the Renaissance Fair. There are interpretive Moon Walks and birding trips, music festivals and wildlife lectures, children’s field days and dancing.
        Hamilton’s Farmers Market always makes for a lively Saturday morning. On the first Friday evening of the month, stroll through Stevensville’s popular First Friday.
        The Ravalli County Museum and Historic St. Mary’s Mission & Museum are treasure troves of history, excellent exhibits, and accompanying events.
        Hamilton’s grand Performing Arts Center offers a spectacular range of evening engagements. Our two charming thespian theaters—Hamilton Players Inc. and Stevensville Playhouse—play to full houses.
