Full Description

This event is truly a family-friendly event where locals and visitors join to celebrate the farm-to-table lifestyle, reminisce about adventures had in Glacier National Park, Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, and the greater region and celebrate small town mountain culture and artisans. This year's music line-up is outstanding!

Columbia Falls Community Market is the brainchild of O'Brien Byrd and several community members. In 2014, O'Brien purchased and renovated the building and exterior property where O'Brien's Liquor and Wine is located. Seeing the need for a place to celebrate community, O'Brien spruced up the exterior property and with community support worked to modify the property to suit a community gathering place. In 2015, the Columbia Falls Community Market began and was welcomed with great fanfare. This event is truly "The Local's Market". If you are in the Glacier National Park area make sure to stop by.
