Are you a music fan? Are you a fan of Red Lodge?
For three days in September, the downtown community of Red Lodge will host an amazing celebration of music, and the creativity of songwriting. The streets, bars, cafes, and parks of downtown Red Lodge will become a gathering place for songwriters and music fans from Montana and around the country. This is the place that will display the art of songwriting at its very best.
What is a Songwriter Festival? A songwriter festival is a collection of intimate, listening room style shows at pubs, restaurants and performing art venues. A day at the Red Lodge Songwriting Festival will start in the morning and continue all day and into the night featuring two to three songwriters playing in some of your favorite downtown establishments. In the evenings Nashville’s Hall of Fame and #1 hit songwriters will showcase their music and share the stories behind their songs in larger performance venues.
A Festival with a cause. The Red Lodge Songwriter Festival is a production of the Rocky Mountain Songwriter Festivals Inc. a 501(c)(3) corporation. A portion of the proceeds from the Red Lodge Songwriter Festival will be gifted to local organizations in Red Lodge and the area that support music education. Our mission is to provide opportunities for people to learn, grow and heal through music and songwriting. These populations include individuals pursuing a career in music through educational scholarships, supporting local school music programs with grants for instruments and equipment, and assisting the recovery of wounded service members. In the past four years we have contributed over $40,000 to the Red Lodge Public School Music Department and Carbon County, created a scholarship endowment at MSU-B in the memory of David Kirby.
We need your help to make this happen. Your support as a Patron of the festival will allow us to continue and expand our efforts to support music education. As a Patron, $1,000 contribution or more, you will receive:
- Two All Access/VIP Passes per $1,000 donated to a maximum of six. Good for admission to all ticketed events, plus an opportunity to meet and take pictures with the artists before and after the VIP/Sponsor Nashville Songwriters in the Round show on Thursday June 24th.
- Reserved VIP seating at all Nashville Hit Songwriter Shows.

Your support as a Patron of the festival will allow us to continue and expand our efforts to support music education and fulfill our vision of creating a world-class songwriting festival that brings songwriters and their fans to Red Lodge to each summer.
