As the Montana Folk Festival heads into its 11th year of music and dancing, food and art marketing, locals are using a new greeting when they meet in the streets: "Happy Folk Fest!" 

The Montana Folk Festival continues through the weekend with musicians attending from all over the world. 

New this year to the First Peoples' Market at the Montana Folk Festival is a program bringing young Native artists from Montana's reservations to exhibit and participate in mentoring and arts programs with artists from Butte and the  Creative Indigenous Collective, a group of prominent Great Plains artists.
