Labor Day, created by the labor movement in the late 19th century, became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day Weekend for many of us means the end of summer and for many more, the beginning of a new school year. Thankfully, the weekend is a cause to celebrate all the contributions and achievements of American workers. For Montana, this means a weekend full of parades, rodeos, concerts, and more. We’ve included several events you can attend to celebrate the holiday!
“Montana’s Biggest Weekend” held by the Dillon Jaycees in Dillon, Montana features a weekend full of rodeo events, a labor day parade, and this year, a concert featuring Dustin Lynch. The rodeo begins Saturday, August 31st at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 1st at 2:00 p.m. Sunday night, the doors to the Dustin Lynch concert will open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert will begin at 8:00 p.m. Monday, September 2nd Labor Day parade will start at 10 a.m.
This years Rumble in the Bay in Bigfork, Montana will be held on Sunday, September 1st in downtown Bigfork.
