Although is is a small town, West Yellowstone hosts a number of events and festivals all year long.  Winter events in the area include several ski races:  the town's Rendezvous Ski Marathon is heading into its 28th year, and the West Yellowstone Snow Blast, a huge multi-day winter carnival, held each March.  The Snow Blast includes snowmobile rides, live music, and snocross races, starting off with a parade through the town's streets and ending on its last day with fireworks.  See the website for details. 

In early spring West Yellowstone hosts the World Snowmobile Expo, featuring races and other events including a trade show and live entertainment.  Springtime also brings the Spring Cycle Tour to West Yellowstone, where hundreds of cyclists ride together along the town's lakes and roads to celebrate the season.

Summer in West Yellowstone is marked by the Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo which is held on several different dates throughout July and August.
