The Christmas Stroll has been one of the longest standing Bozeman community traditions! Each year, the Downtown Bozeman Association and the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture team up to put out a “call for art” for the official Christmas Stroll Poster design. Several creative designs were submitted this year, it may have been our hardest selection process yet! But we could only choose one. As the icing on top the Downtown Bozeman Association and the Emerson pool together $200 to give as a cash prize to the winning artist and buttons the evening’s Christmas Stroll.

The 2018 Christmas Stroll Poster Contest Winner is Seth Neilson!

Seth is a multi-disciplinary creative director, illustrator, photographer, designer, reluctant enthusiast, wayward mountaineer, artist, teacher, craftsman, and midnight lakeswimmer—using Bozeman, Montana as base camp. Seth’s designs are appealing for their simplicity and clean design yet feature eccentricities and an attention to detail that is captivating. This is his 2nd Christmas Stroll Poster design. His last was a Stroll favorite featuring the goldened buckled feet of Santa. Visit for more information about our 2018 Christmas Stroll Poster Designer!

Seth will be on-hand signing posters at the Gingerbread House making activity at the Emerson on the day of the Stroll, December 1st from 1-2pm. CLICK HERE for more information about the 2018 Christmas Stroll!
