Mainstreet Uptown Butte
February 2009 — Present
I plan and organize our community festivals and events. Our largest event, The Montana Folk Festival (after three years being the NCTA National Folk Festival) was recently recognized as an ABA top 100 event in the United States, alongside Mardi Gras, The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, The Rose Bowl and more. Our average attendance is over 120,000 and we have 7 music stages featuring musicians and dancers from around the world. I manage a paid and unpaid volunteer staff of over 1,000 on a daily basis to prepare for and complete the event. Other events include Evel Knievel Days in Butte, The annual Octoberfest, the annual Christmas Stroll, a fantastic Ice Sculpting competition and more.
