No matter how much our lives can revolve around snow, there comes a day when you just can’t take another minute of ass-freezing ski turns and you want to do something with the family. Fortunately for the residents of Bozeman, mid-February offers an escape at the Fairgrounds with The Wild West Winterfest. This family event offers a break from the cold with tons of events: a dog keg-pull, chili cook-off, a petting zoo, ski joring, and horse sale just to name a few. Whether your persuasion is photography, quilts, or children’s art, you’ll find it here. There’s plenty of live music and tons of great food to eat too. The Wild West Winterfest runs February 18-19.
