Rocky Mountain Songwriter Festivals Inc.

    The Rocky Mountain Songwriter Festivals Inc. is a non-profit 501 c-3 corporation. We create and produce multi-day festivals that bring the creativity of songwriting to mountain communities in Montana and Wyoming. Our festivals are hosted in the downtown districts of these communities utilizing the existing infrastructure of bars, restaurants, coffee houses and theaters. Our festivals include live performances, songwriting classes and songwriting contests.

    Through these festivals we are able to fulfill our mission to promote music education through local public schools, private schools and colleges.
