In the interest of our public’s safety and continuing to slow the spread of COVID-19 the annual Big Sky Christmas Stroll will look very different this year. We are asking all of our merchants and neighbors to not host the traditional large gatherings and packed holiday parties of years past. That being said, Town Center, Meadow Village Center, Westfork Meadows, Visit Big Sky and our community partners are not about to let the holiday lights go out on 22+ years of Big Sky tradition.
The 23rd Annual Big Sky Christmas Stroll is scheduled for December 7-13. This year’s event will feature a variety of festive online offerings and in person activities focusing on community, giving and the holiday spirit. Check back here for more info coming soon.
