Wildlands Festival Mission


This summer, Wildlands Festival will host the fourth annual conservation event supporting wild and scenic places in Southwest Montana and beyond. Outlaw Partners, in conjunction with Gallatin Valley Land Trust, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and Wild Montana are celebrating the importance of these wild and scenic places that each organization directly supports.

Wildlands Festival charities benefit from 6+ different fundraising activities and awareness of their important mission for conservation through ticket and sponsor sales, volunteer donations, merchandise sales, silent auction items, and the Wildlands Festival charity dinner. Last year's total amount raised reached $513,473. If you are interested in supporting the beneficiaries please take a look at our ticket options.

To read more about how these charities plan to utilize donations from the event to support their conservation efforts, please check out the organization's descriptions and links below. We look forward to announcing the grand total of funds raised on Sunday, August 3 at the Big Sky Events Arena.


Our 2024 Partners


We can’t do it alone. We’re proud to partner with like-minded conservation non-profits to protect public lands in our region and across the country.


Gallatin Valley Land Trust

Gallatin Valley Land Trust connects people to the landscapes that surround us through the conservation of open spaces and the creation of trail systems. Through our work we provide spaces for children to get outside, protect habitat for our area’s most iconic wildlife species, keep working farms working, and offer world-class outdoor recreation from our Main Street to the Mountains trail system, and so much more. In short, we preserve the very things that make southwest Montana such a great place to live.

It is of deep importance to more than four dozen tribes with historic and cultural ties to the ecosystem. Those who live here – and those who visit – know there is no place like it in the world. The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is an extraordinary natural and cultural landscape. At the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, it’s our job is to keep it that way.
