It sounds too good to be true: You meet up with some friends at the park in the Big Sky Town Center on a sunny summer evening. You grab a cold beer, a lemonade or some food and find your space on the lawn in front of Center Stage. People are gathering around you, kids chase each other, laughing. When the band starts to play, it all comes together: this is the perfect summer evening, you think to yourself, and it surely can’t get better than this. Later, when the sun finally sets behind Lone Peak and the energy is heating up, you realize that it can. Best of all? This happens more than a dozen times in the summer, and it’s all free. That’s right, free.
It's free because of the Arts Council of Big Sky, a non-profit organization which believes that Arts play an integral role in the cultural and economic development of any community. It's free because we want to show the world what Big Sky has to offer, and quite frankly, we think our little mountain town is one of the last best 'gems' of the West.
We do more than free music, however. Our winter series brings classical and folk artists to Big Sky, while we work closely with the local school and other non-profits to ensure that Arts remain a big part of youth development and education. We've been in existence for 25 years, but we feel like we are just getting started. Join us!
