The MSU Alumni Association, the Downtown Bozeman Partnership and Montana State University will host the seventh annual Bobcat Fest on Main from 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 1, on Main Street in downtown Bozeman. The street will be closed to traffic during the event, which will include live music by Milton Menasco & The Big Fiasco, free giveaways, a pizza eating contest starting at 6 p.m. and complimentary food and drinks for everyone. Bobcat Fest is free and open to the public and will not be cancelled due to weather.

The community event is a cooperative effort with involvement and donations from more than 40 businesses and organizations. It is designed to help thank MSU for being an essential part of the Bozeman community.

Those needing a ride from MSU can catch Streamline’s Blue or Red lines to get to the event by 5 p.m. The Blue line leaves MSU at 4:21 p.m. and 4:51 p.m., and the Red line leaves at 4:19 p.m. and 4:49 p.m. There will be a bus parked downtown at 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street and Tracy Avenue to take participants back to campus.
