From Montana Folk Festival Website:

The Montana Folk Festival will return to Southwest Montana July 10-12, 2020.

The festival is a community event with statewide impacts. Over the past decade, the economic impact in Butte and the surrounding trade area has been estimated at about $25 for every dollar spent on the festival that is held in the historic zone, the heart of Butte.

While the festival welcomes visitors to Butte and Montana from far and wide and is an important economic engine, it also remains a major cultural event and a hope engine as well.
We continue to target a larger share of the states growing tourism revenues for Butte/ From the outset, we have developed this festival as an economic development project to benefit Butte and surrounding communities and we are proud of what has been achieved and what the potential is for economic development through such a signature event in coming years.
The potential for sustained and growing economic impacts from the Montana Folk Festival remain large and exciting as it continues to attract summer visitors to Montana with disposable income to spend in our economy. With the continued support of our sponsors and contributors, we can only continue to reap positive rewards for Butte and Montana.
Once again, planning is underway for six stages presenting new music and dance performances and moderated talk/demonstration sessions, a dance pavilion, a Family Area, a Montana Folklife Area, regional and ethnic foods, and a festival folk arts market and the First Peoples Market that features the works of Montanas Native American artists.

Admission to all performances is free of charge to all thanks to sponsorships, grants and individual contributions before during and after the festival and the volunteerism of up to 900 supporters who make it work smoothly each year.
