Excellent site for dog show. Plenty of room for Rv's and day parking. Buildings for dog grooming and show rings were A/C. Grassy areas for walking dogs. Good experience.

MontanaFair is a big deal to us. The nieces and nephew show their 4-H animals, ride rides late into the night, and my summer would not be complete without a good sampling of the good fried food that makes every cardiologist cringe. We really like...More

This event has been held here before which shows you its a great place to hold an event for several thousand people. Everything was well located without having to do a lot of walking.
