When you raise a glass at Great Bear Festival, you're raising a glass to build communities! All proceeds are donated to projects that improve the quality of life for people here and across the world.

The 5th Annual Rotary Great Bear Festival is coming to Kalispell Depot Park on Saturday, August 6 from 4:00 – 9:30PM. Kalispell’s Daybreak and Noon Rotary Clubs and Title Sponsor Toyota invite everyone to join the fun and “Raise a glass to raise a community!” 

Since 2017 the Rotary Great Bear Festival has raised and donated more than $200,000 to support the critical work of outstanding community nonprofits and to help fund lifesaving global service projects. Rotarians credit the generosity of Title Sponsor Toyota, Grizzly Bear Sponsor Bay Equity and a host of other philanthropic local businesses and individuals whose sponsorship donations allow for maximum net charitable proceeds. 

Each year at the Rotary Great Bear Festival 2,000 people enjoy a beautiful day in Kalispell Depot Park sampling some of the best beers, hard ciders, and wines produced in the area, accompanied by fine food and great live music. Great Bear #5 will feature more than 35 breweries, wineries and cider makers; a dozen favorite food vendors; music by Chain Reaction and Kenny James Miller Band; and a special admission VIP tent with gourmet food from Desoto Grill and S&M Tacos. 

Even the Festival landscape will be enhanced! The new Parkline Trail running right past Depot Park is open for locals and visitors to explore and enjoy Kalispell’s beautifully transformed downtown corridor. 

Tickets are available online at Eventbrite.com or at the gate.
