Decision Day

Look, we just had the biggest Pride celebration that Montana has ever seen, but history is being made very soon. The Supreme Court has only got a few more days to hand down their decision on Marriage Equality, and we hope they side with us!

If they rule in our favor, we want to celebrate, and because of the timing and the size of our amazing state, we won't have a chance to get everyone together. Instead, here are the locations for us to gather, and as we find and settle more, we'll let you know. 

Join the Facebook event.


Helena will be at Eagles 16 
Bozeman will be at Bar IX
Missoula will be at The Rhino
Billings will be at Yellowstone Valley Brewing Co.
Butte will be at Metals Sports Bar & Grill
Great Falls will be TBD
Kalispell will be TBD

(Ok, so we're still working on this. Hang tight, we'll fill it all in shortly!)

Three-Eared Dog - MSBP Part 5

Three-Eared Dog represents the finest and the freshest talent in the Western Montana music scene. Originally conceived as a blues trio, the project has evolved into an eight piece ensemble with a soulful, modern sound influenced by neo-soul, jazz, hip-hop, and funk as well as good ol’ rock’n’roll. Lifelong friends and collaborators, the members of Three-Eared Dog are on mission to bring their original songs to the world’s attention, one night at a time. Fronted by the peerless Jordan Smith and featuring a full horn line, three-part harmonies, and a relentless rhythm section, the band delivers a heartfelt performance guaranteed to tickle your ears, melt your face, and touch your soul.

2014 was the year of the Dog, as the crew headlined events including Bearmouth Festival, Libby Street Dance, Bitterroot Brewfest, and Big Sky Blues Festival while kicking up dust at every small-town bar in between. Now the Dog is a-howling out from the Rockies to strut on the national stage – “We’ve spent our lives writing music together. Now’s the time to bring it across the borders of Montana” vowed bassist Sam Ore. Keep eyes on the horizon and ears to the ground, ‘cause the Dog is comin’ to throw down in your town.
You can find out more about Three Eared Dog by visiting the band’s website at www.threeeareddog.com"

Big Sky Pride's annual Parade starts lining up at 12:30 pm, but the march can't begin until 1:30. If you're going to join us in the parade, please meet at Hellgate High School and be as loud and proud as you can. We start marching right at 1:30 and we'll end at the rally and street party, so you'll be rarin' to go, and right where you need to be!

Anyone and everyone is welcome to walk in the parade for free and without registration! If your business or organization would like to walk together, or host a float, there is a $50 charge, and you must register.  Please visit the parade page for details and forms.

If you want to take it easy and just watch the parade, your best places will be Higgins Ave, on the Higgins St Bridge, and on up the way to the rally and block party location at W. Main and Ryman! It promises to be spectacular!

Pride Breakfast at the Catalyst

Start your Pride day off right with a quick hike or a saucy saunter on one of the many trails in Missoula and end up on Higgins at the Catalyst Cafe. Featuring the smoothest coffee and the best breakfasts in town, the Catalyst is the most colorful way to start Pride. You can take the River Trail to Caras Park and then just jaunt a few blocks up to the restaurant. Or, if you're more casual, it's still just a short scoot from the Campus Inn, the Doubletree, Motel 6 or the Holiday Inn Downtown. They offer menu items for vegetarians, vegans and celiacs, too!

We'll see you there, bright and early!

Women's Pride Night

Have a fun night out with the ladies at the Roxy Theater to kick off Pride weekend! Enjoy Hors d'oeuvers and a No-Host bar during the social hour from 5:30-7 pm

Grab a gal pal when the lights go out at 7 pm for the romantic feature film Tru Love.  Tru, 37, is a serial bed-hopping lesbian who cannot commit to a relationship or a job for long...that is, until she meets Alice, 60, a beautiful widow, who has come to town at the last minute to visit her daughter, Suzanne, 35, a too-busy corporate lawyer and Tru's friend. Alice and Tru begin to forge an unlikely friendship...and more. Suzanne, who has a deeply conflicted relationship with her mother and a complicated past with Tru, becomes increasingly alarmed at the growing bond between Tru and her mother. Tensions escalate after Suzanne witnesses an intimate moment between them. She tries to sabotage the budding romance, but it backfires, as Tru Love is hard to contain.  Movie tickets $8 Adults/$7 Seniors
