Monday Jun. 7th, 2021

Bannack State Park’s signature event, Bannack Days, will return this year with many familiar activities, displays, and re-enactments celebrating Montana’s first territorial capital.  

Bannack Days are scheduled to happen Saturday, July 17, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, July 18, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  

About 20 miles west of Dillon, Bannack State Park is a National Historic Landmark and the site of Montana’s first major gold discovery in 1862. More than 50 historic buildings line Bannack’s Main Street. During Bannack Days, the ghost town comes alive with displays, re-enactments, artisan demonstrations, music and other family-friendly festivities.  

Admission is $5 for individuals ages 9 and older, or $20 per family. Children ages 8 and younger are free. Food and drinks can be purchased from vendors during the event.
