What's Happening in Our Area

Our North Central Montana area consists of extensively diverse counties including Glacier, Pondera, Toole, Cascade, and Teton.  We have Glacier National Park, guest ranches, numerous lakes, rivers and streams for fishing, the Lewis and Clark trail including camp disappointment and the Two Medicine Fight Site, dinosaur digs, several museums, as well as many local fairs and celebrations.  Below are links to area Chambers of Commerce and other local interest groups to help you plan your trip.

The Blackfeet Reservation, home of the Blackfeet Nation, is located on the East side of Glacier National Park.  They have many attractions and activities including North American Indian Days as well as the Museum of the Plains Indian, which features the historical arts and crafts of local Tribes, and the Blackfeet Heritage Center and Art Gallery that also houses a baby tyrannosaur!

Cut Bank, located in Glacier County, offers fishing, hiking, big game hunting, camping, Lewis and Clark sites, shopping, farmer’s markets in the summer, and many community activities.

Shelby, located in Toole County, hosted the famous Dempsey-Gibbons 1923 Fight and is the home of the Port of Nothtern Montana.  Shelby is your “crossroads to fun” located at the crossroads of I-15 Highway 2. Shelby is the gateway to Glacier National Park as well as the Great Northwest.

A few miles off of I-15, history abounds in the small town of Valier.  Originally a 200,000-acre ranch, Valier is now home to Lake Frances, a premier recreation site that offers camping, world class Walleye fishing, and boat docks to allow access for an abundant supply of water sports.  Hunting, ice fishing, and snowmobiling are also popular activities in the area.  Valier is also on the way to the Lewis and Clark Two Medicine Fight Site as well as Glacier National Park.

Between Great Falls and Shelby, lies the city of Conrad in the heart of the Golden Triangle. Conrad is located on the historical "whoop-up Trail", which was a trading route running to Canada in the 1800’s. Conrad’s City Hall building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Great Falls, the third largest city in Montana, is the major metropolitan city in our area, and the western art capital of the world!  Great Falls offers an abundance of cultural activities, outdoor recreation, rodeos, the C.M. Russell Museum, Lewis and Clark historical sites, as well as several parks and trails.  This family friendly city has everything you would need to live and work here.  Great Falls is home to the Montana State Fair, Malstrom Air Force Base, has an international airport, and is connected to the major interstates and highways.
