A Destination for Family Fun, Fab Festivals & Farmers Markets
Summer is the best season to plan a getaway to Big Sky! Escape the mundane and explore miles of wilderness for hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATV adventures, ziplining, river rafting and famous blue-ribbon fly fishing. Big Sky Resort opens up their world-famous ski slopes for classic summer alpine adventures and the town is abuzz with locals and tourists soaking up the sunshine, swimming and boating on Lake Levinsky, dining on outdoor patios, and living the laid-back mountain life.
Situated in Meadow Village, Big Sky Town Center is a year-round destination for family fun, fab festivals, summer farmers markets, and world-class golfing. Big Sky Town Center is the heart and soul of the Big Sky community, the best place to shop, dine and sip local craft beer, and a hangout for locals and visitors alike. You’ll find everything from pizza to fine dining, cocktails bars and breweries, grocery stores and unique Old West boutiques, and classic movies and music at The Independent.
Throughout the summer Big Sky Town Center is the central hub for some of the biggest events in Big Sky and free festivals! Nothing beats browsing vibrant mountain markets, live music in an iconic outdoor arena with top touring bands, and free fun for the whole family. Here’s what to expect at Big Sky Town Center this summer.
