While we continue to navigate the waters of the COVID-19 pandemic, and await the shift into phase 3 of reopening in the state, SLAM has determined that it is in the best interest of our community to present a series of alternatives in lieu of our summer festival. 

Did someone say music?! YES!!!! We’re hosting a concert at the Eagle Mount Pavilion on September 26th featuring Peter King and the Dead Yellers and Russ Chapman.  This will be a physically distanced, masks mandatory, and ticketed event, with only 50 people allowed in the outdoor concert venue.  Tickets will go fast, so get yours HERE before they sell out! 

We understand that this pandemic has disproportionately impacted the artist and musician community, and have developed a financial relief fund to support our community during this uncertain time. To date, SLAM has awarded 20 grants to Montana artists and musicians, and we look forward to continuing to be a resource while our funds allow. If you’re interested in donating to the relief fund, please email SLAM at

We are genuinely excited to be able to responsibly continue our mission of “promoting the arts and art education in a manner that enriches and involves the community” in these new ways. We look forward to returning to our traditional models when the time is right. Until then, stay happy, healthy, and creative!
