Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, along with Sacagawea and the Corps of Discovery, spent nearly a month in the Great Falls area in 1805, encountering one of their biggest obstacles – the series of waterfalls known as the Great Falls of the Missouri. The Lewis and Clark Festival re-creates the adventures and hardships of life in the 1805 frontier encountered by the Corps of Discovery.

Native American dancers, a black powder rifle demonstration, and live music throughout the day are just a few of the activities and sights that visitors will enjoy at this year’s 30th annual Lewis and Clark Festival in Great Falls, Montana. It is organized each year by the Lewis & Clark Foundation.

Thanks to sponsors such as US Bank and the Portage Route Chapter, Saturday’s Festival events are free to the public, with a jam-packed day filled with fun family activities. Please help us thank our sponsors, who are listed at the bottom of this page.
