Can't Stop the Music!

Information on the 2017 music lineup has been posted in the Band section.  Please check back often for festival updates!



The Buck Creek Festival is a free, family-friendly community event held on the second weekend of May in Helena’s Amphitheater Park. On the banks of Buck Creek, just below the dam, the heavily wooded site together with the incredible stage provides a wonderful venue for people of all ages to enjoy crafts, children’s activities, great food, and fabulous music.  During the life of the Festival, over $271,000 has been returned to the community for a variety of projects that benefit all of Helena.  Come join us !
