The dust kicks up thick and gritty in the Gardiner parking lot like it rarely does in Bozeman’s clean-swept downtown. The main drag is sparsely populated; the locals and tourists have migrated up the road to the rodeo grounds where they’re squeezed into bleachers, leaning against the fence, or waiting in line for a greasy burger.

Rodeo days are the summer draw for small towns across Montana. No one does it better or more authentically. During the rodeo celebration, the towns come alive in a rustic, genuine way that can’t be matched by big-city rodeos, no matter how flashy the promotions or renowned the sponsors.
