Monthly Newsletter Presented by the HDA in Hamilton, Montana


Celebrate the creation of the Hamilton Downtown Foundation, a non-profit organization to raise funds in support of the Hamilton Downtown Association and its mission to enhance and protect the heart of our community. Downtown Hamilton is a place to gather, connect and make memories - join us as we do that for one special evening. We'll dine on Main Street, nestled between our historic downtown buildings and in the shadow of our majestic Bitterroot Mountains. We'll connect with our neighbors and enjoy local bluegrass music. And we'll celebrate the future of our amazing town, and the organizations working to make it happen.


Bike Repair Station

Bike Walk Bitterroot in partnership with The City of Hamilton just installed a Bike Repair Station at the library! This kit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance. Did you know that if businesses want to install a bike rack, Bike Walk Bitterroot would share the costs with them?
