Summer Fun at Antelope Butte
Dear friends,

Thanks to all of you who came up to Antelope Butte for BrewFest. It was truly an unforgettable weekend of fun, family and friends.

The day kicked off with a mountainside yoga class that set a happy, relaxed tone for the day. As more people arrived, nine terrific regional craft breweries began pouring beer, including Luminous Brewhouse, Black Tooth Brewing, Red Lodge Ales, WYOld West Brewing Co., Lander Brewing Co., The Knuckle Brewing Co., Crow Peak Brewing, Broken Compass Brewing and Ten Sleep Brewing Co. The sounds of  live music from Dugan Irby and The Nate Champion Band were the perfect accompaniment.

One of the most gratifying parts of the day was seeing so many happy kids simply being kids -- laughing, running, exploring, and enjoying being outside. A huge part of our mission in reopening Antelope Butte is to help people of all ages experience the joy of being outdoors in the mountains. BrewFest was a perfect opportunity for families and friends to be here together and have fun.

To all of our wonderful volunteers and supporters, we are truly grateful. It takes a village to put on an event like this, and we appreciate everyone's help.

We hope you'll come up and join us for family fun and music during the Summer Festival this month. You'll find full details and ticket information below. Special thanks to the festival's Title Sponsor Big Horn Rural Electric Company, and our event sponsors including Tanager Beverages, Kennon, Powder Horn Realty, Black Tooth Brewing and Deines Chiropractic Clinic. 

We are ever-grateful for your support, and look forward to seeing you soon at Antelope Butte.

Thank you,

John Kirlin, Executive Director
Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area

Antelope Butte Lodge renovation
We're working hard to meet our next BIG goal ahead to complete our 11,400 square foot lodge, which is currently undergoing a major renovation.

The Lodge will be the center of ALL year-round mountain activities--hosting, teaching, learning, sharing, laughing, playing and celebrating. It is where all will gather to take a break, grab a bite, make a new friend and reminisce about the great day. The Lodge is the place where memories are made.

We need your help!

Our next phase of construction includes projects like HVAC, plumbing, electrical work, exterior siding, soffits, gutters and the roof.
