Farmers Market

Saturday, Oct. 5


The final Butte Farmers' Market of the season will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The seasonal event offers fresh produce, other foods, all kinds of plants and a variety of arts and crafts. Vendors line up every Saturday on both sides of West Park Street between Gamers Café and the Phoenix Building.


Join the YMCA for its first annual Country Hoedown. This community fundraiser is jam packed with fun activities, auction, food, music and line dancing. The event starts at 5 p.m. at Headframe Spirits and ends at the Elks Lodge with Divas & Dudes until midnight. Tickets can be purchased for $10 at the welcome center. Details: 406-782-1266.


The Science Mine, 36 E. Granite St., will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. How can you make electricity with magnetism? Enjoy new exhibits — the telephone switch — and good old favorites including Tesla coils, stream tables, laser mazes, and more. Non-member admission is $5 per person; $15 per family, or renew your membership for the season. 


A cider pressing party hosted by Jackson’s Garden will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. People are encouraged to bring their apples and clean containers and take home the cider they press or just come and watch and enjoy hot cider and fresh donuts.Washing stations will be set up to prepare your apples prior to pressing: bring your own knives and cutting boards. However having your apples prepped before you arrive will reduce your waiting time. Depending on the turn out your pressing time may be limited. The first gallon you press is free, but a donation of $5 gallon is suggested. Jackson’s Garden is located 2 miles east of Sheridan on Mill Creek Road. Watch for the greenhouses.
