Arts Council Awarded Economic Impact and Destination Event Grant

Jun 26, 2024

The Arts Council's Music in the Mountains program was recently awarded a $19,950 grant from the Montana Department of Commerce. The Economic Impact and Destination Event Grant, which is offered through the Department of Commerce, will help fund the popular free concert series, assisting with infrastructure needs, signage and advertising.

The purpose of the Economic Impact and Destination Event Grant is to assist Montana's communities with destination events and new events that will increase tourism to include regional, national and international visitors, promote Montana's unique attributes and generate additional community revenue, with a focus on rural communities.

"We are very grateful to the State of Montana for supporting Music in the Mountains," says Brian Hurlbut, Executive Director of the Arts Council of Big Sky. "It recognizes how important this program is not only to our local community, but to our statewide audience as well."

In 2023 more than 45,000 people flocked to Big Sky for the free outdoor concert series. This year's concerts start on June 20 and go through September 12.
