In Big Sky, summer also means outdoor concerts, fairs, rodeos and theatrical performances. On Thursday nights, during the months of June, July and August, the Arts Council of Big Sky hosts many musical talents that satisfy most musical tastes:  blue grass, country, classical, jazz, and everything in between. The ACBS sponsors a three day classical arts festival in mid-August.  The music venue is located on Ousel Falls Road in Town Center. 

Year round musical and theatrical performances, along with visual arts exhibitions, are held in the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on the Big Sky School District campus, located on Highway 191, just 3 miles south of the intersection with Lone Mountain Trail.

The Crail Ranch Homestead Museum, open on weekends throughout July and August, is located on Spotted Elk Road in the Meadow.  A tour of the museum reveals the area's history before the opening of the ski resorts.  See photos from the 1800s and 1900s as well as artifacts original to the Crail Ranch, assembled in the old homestead buildings.

Big Sky also hosts a food festival , country fair, rodeo, art walk, and a spectacular Independence Day fireworks display.
