The DPB Team
The Downtown Bozeman Association continues to have some tough conversations regarding the future hosting of our favorite summer events!
While adhering to the Reopening Guidelines set by our governor and with support by our by the Gallatin City-County Health Department, We have decided to CANCEL Music on Main concerts through the month of July as well as the Art Walks on June 12 and July 10 .
As for August and September events, we are still in discussion about these and will announce any additional cancellations to our summer event no less that 30 days prior to each event. We are sad to cancel some of Bozeman's most beloved summer traditions but we know it is the right decision for the safety and healthy of the community we love so much.

Summer is around the corner and that means the flower baskets will be hung before we know it! We hope the flower baskets are a comforting sight that welcomes employees and customers to come back downtown. We understand that these times have been very challenging, and your business might not be in a position to donate. If you can help support this downtown tradition, please complete and return the attached flower basket sponsorship form .
As of May 11th, paid parking after the first 2 free hours has resumed at Bridger Park Garage.
Following that, the week of May 18th, the 2-hour limit for public street and surface lot parking will be enforced.
These transitions back to “normal” will be communicated by City Parking Division staff with signage and warning citations.
As the curve shows signs of flattening, how we re-open our businesses and welcome back our staff and customers is going to become our primary focus! We want to make sure we continue to be a resource for you as you make plans for your customers and employees.
