Tips for Attending

Consider the following tips to make your time at MontanaFair the best it can be.

Park smart
MontanaFair is not responsible for loss or damage to valuables or vehicles in the parking lot. Lock your car, and don’t leave valuables within view.

Leave pets at home
Pets are not allowed at MontanaFair and should not be left in your car. Even on a mild day, temperatures inside a vehicle can be risky, and security personnel will report any animals left in vehicles to the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office. Dogs participating in the Splash Dog event will be admitted to the fairgrounds, but will not be allowed to leave the Splash Dog event area and need to be kept on a leash.

Be prepared
Wear comfortable shoes for walking, and bring a light jacket in case weather changes. Wear sunscreen and stay hydrated. MontanaFair vendors offer lots of beverage options, but several free drinking fountains are also marked on the fair map. A first aid station, sponsored by Billings Clinic, is also marked on the map and can offer help for blisters, cuts, scrapes, insect stings and other minor injuries. Emmanuel Baptist Church provides a changing station and private area for nursing mothers in the commercial exhibits area. Wheelchairs and strollers are available for rent at the Information Booth. Bring what you need, but avoid overpacking. Backpacks and large bags are not allowed on carnival rides.

Stay safe
MontanaFair is a weapons free event. Please do not bring weapons to the fair. Children under age 15 should be accompanied by an adult. Lost children and missing persons should be reported at the security center, located behind the stage near Fourth Ave.
