Presented by the Old Salt Co-op, the 2nd annual Old Salt Festival is a food & music celebration of Montana land stewardship held June 21-23rd, 2024. We’re bringing together top chefs, Americana musicians, Montana ranchers, and Western makers to celebrate in high Montana style on the Mannix Family Ranch.

What does that mean? It means that attendees will be eating food grown by Montana producers and cooked by celebrity chefs, dancing to music with a deeply Western soul, and engaging with artists hellbent on keeping craft traditions and handhewn creativity intact.

You can also expect to learn about the ways of the working ranches that make up the Old Salt Co-op, whether that’s attending the butchery demonstration, learning about low stress livestock handling, or digging into cooking over fire with our chef teams.

Musical Headliners: The Last Revel (Friday), Emily Nenni (Saturday), and Summer Dean (Sunday)

Featured Chefs: Chef Eduardo Garcia, Mona & Jaret from Tournant PDX, and Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen

Other Experiences We’re Excited to Feature:

  • Well-thought-out spaces for kids to play, engage, and learn
  • A mule packing demo with the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation and Chris Eyer, the “Mule Dragger”
  • Glamping onsite from Wild Productions
  • Talks with authors Hal Herring and Betsy Gaines Quammen led by Ed Roberson of Mountain + Prairie

Start Time 11:00 am End Time 7:00 pm
