Imagine a community where you can connect with friends, enjoy time outside with your whole family, meet new people, and learn about and support local businesses - all while enjoying the warm and carefree days of summer.
That community is Belgrade and every Thursday night each summer is the Belgrade Community Market where you will not only find produce, great food, and other vendors but also fun community events brought to you by the BCC, Belgrade Community Library, Belgrade Chamber, Outpost Montana, and others!

Through dedication, perseverance, and incredible support from our community, the Belgrade Skatepark opened in 2016 at Lewis and Clark Park with the help of Skateboard Alliance of Montana (formerly GVSA)
The skate park has been a huge success, with kids of all ages using it year-around.
YOUTH ART PROJECT
In 2016, Phases I and II were completed when twelve utility boxes were wrapped in art created by local kids.
We completed the third phase of our Youth Art project, wrapping trash cans in Lewis & Clark Park at the end of July 2017.
Over 160 pieces of student art was submitted and 45 were chosen to wrap the trash cans, including 3 Community Choice Winners.
Belgrade local, Keith Mainwaring brought the idea of creating a mural of the Belgrade Bull to the Belgrade Community Coalition. Along with his fundraising skills, artist Wendy Marquis's creation, and our project management - the city of Belgrade has new art to adorn our town.
Check it out on the side of Montana Camp Antiques and Gifts next time your downtown.

Belgrade Community Market
Belgrade Community Library
