Bozeman Ranked #2 Dreamtown in United States

Helena, Montana Ranked #5

America may be a metropolitan nation, but most of us don’t seem very happy about it.

A total of 252 million people — 83.5 percent of all Americans — live in metropolitan areas. That includes 164 million in the 51 biggest metros, the ones with populations above 1 million.

Yet a substantial number of these residents of big cities and inner-ring suburbs don’t have their hearts in it. They would prefer to live on the suburban fringe or in small-town America, as repeatedly shown by surveys during the past decade.

The top three small towns:
1. Torrington, Conn.
2. Bozeman, Montana.
3. Lexington Park, Md.

Bozeman Quality of Life –
Strengths: This Rocky Mountain community is fast-growing and prosperous. Only four micropolitan areas have expanded more rapidly than Bozeman since the start of this decade. The local poverty rate is the lowest in any U.S. micro, and the unemployment rate is the second-lowest.

Closest major metropolitan area: Denver, 517 air miles

Bozeman’s Sweet Pea Festival is a celebration of the Arts. Bozeman, Montana’s Sweet Pea Festival was instituted to celebrate the arts in and around the community of Bozeman. The Sweet Pea Festival thrives because Bozeman and the greater Gallatin Valley region desires to continue in this annual celebration of the arts…because art adds immensely to the life of the community.

From The Sweet Pea website:

Founders. The Sweet Pea Festival had its humble beginnings in 1978. It was established to be a community event that celebrates, cultivates and promotes the arts in Bozeman”. The founders of this event wrote on April 13, 1977; “a working committee took shape from an amorphous group of Bozemanites dedicating themselves to staging a three-day “celebration of creativity” among the community ….”.

Giving back to the community. Sweet Pea is the definition of community in its purest form. The original founders desired that the festival support and encourage cultural activities beyond the annual celebration. To this end, the Sweet Pea Festival has a proud tradition of returning any funds gathered beyond expenses back to the community. Any profits realized above and beyond the year’s expenses are given back to the community, each year, in the form of grants for arts, arts education and special projects, such as taking care of the beautiful park that hosts the Festival.

Run by Volunteers. Sweet Pea has always been run and organized by volunteers. It has grown from a group of 17 organizers to 35 committees, 50 year-round Board members and up to 2,000 volunteers by the time all is accomplished for the current year.

Funding. Sweet Pea is funded primarily by the sale of the admissions. The first organizers purchased two button making machines and five committee members created 1,000 buttons each. In 2004 over 19,000 buttons were sold.

You may volunteer. Sweet Pea has been an important part of the arts and the artistic and cultural life of Bozeman for nearly 30 years. It is the hope of all of the dedicated volunteers, past and present that Sweet Pea will continue on in the exciting and important tradition it has established and continue to remain the most cherished celebration that it is.

Premier Events include: Sweet Pea Ball, Chalk on the Walk, Bite of Bozeman, Art Show Opening
