Big Timber and Sweet Grass County continue to be beautiful areas to visit or live. Sweet Grass County is truly where the plains become the Rockies and is known for magnificent scenery and western culture!
Surrounded on three sides by the Absaroka-Beartooths and the Crazy Mountains, our area hosts the gateway to the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and contains breath-taking scenery. The Yellowstone River, Boulder River, and the many smaller streams in our county provide some of the most acclaimed fishing, camping, and outdoor recreational opportunities in the state.
Spend some time in Big Timber and the Sweet Grass County area to experience western hospitality off the fast lane. Our annual Rodeo, Sweet Grass Fest, Crazy Mountain Christmas, and County Fair are exciting events for the whole family.
Sweet Grass Fest is a celebration with a purpose – Ridin’ Ropin’ –n- Rockin’! Coupled with the Big Timber Rodeo whose roots run deep into the heart of Rodeo and Montana history, Sweet Grass Fest is designed to share our special place in Montana, Sweet Grass County, with family, friends and visitors alike. . Scheduled for June 26-27, 2015, Sweet Grass Fest is a community festival held in conjunction with the Big Timber Rodeo, that includes a fun run, an antique car and cycle show, a street fair with vendor and live music, the rodeo parade, and rounds out each evening with professionally produced concerts featuring country-rock artists from all over the country. The weekend is also a host of other family-friendly events designed to celebrate the history, culture and traditions of Big Timber and Sweet Grass County. Sweet Grass Fest is the primary fundraising event for the Sweet Grass Chamber each year
