MontanaFair in Billings, August 9th-17th, is the largest event in the state. It includes top-notch concerts, exhibits, food, carnival rides and much more. Gate Admission for MontanaFair is $8 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6-12 and those 65 and older, and free for kids 5 and younger.
MontanaFair does not have reserved parking. For TV crews coming and going on short schedules, a station car can often be accommodated in Parking Lot 2 (by the Grandstand) where the Carnival employees park. Gate staff will make that call on arrival. Occasionally, a car may be parked for a short period of time in the loading bay of the Montana Pavilion – accessible from the Lower Parking Lot. If parking in this area, please pull to the side to leave access for others. Please do not block other vehicles in the process.
If you are coming to MontanaFair to cover a story and will need to park far away, please contact Anne Gauer or Allen Peters on arrival, and we will do our best to pick you up with a golf cart.
