Founded in 2011 by Sarah Calhoun, Red Ants Pants has become one of the most anticipated Montana events of the summer. The music festival, a program of the 501(c)3 Red Ants Pants Foundation, works to bring the larger Montana Community together and further their mission to “develop and expand leadership roles for women, preserve and support working family farms and ranches, and to enrich and promote rural communities.”
This festival is a one-of-a-kind four-day event located just three miles outside of White Sulpher Springs on the Jackson Ranch. Throughout the event, a free shuttle will run about every 20 minutes from town to the venue, creating a hassle-free environment where you are free to kick back and relax.
Yes, a little Made in the USA pants company started a music festival. Not the usual path for small business, but why not?
This festival is 100% home grown and run by an incredibly dedicated crew of hard working staff. We are joined every July by dozens of friends and family that round out our 90-strong festival staff. Throw in 250 festival volunteers and this makes for a lot of hard work to pull off a pretty fantastic celebration.
Thank you for being part of the excitement!
