Sunrise Festival To Include Art Classes


The Sunrise Festival of the Arts, which is July 9, is excited to be offering four different art classes this year. The two offered last year were so well received that officials decided to expand the offering.

The classes will be held outside in Veterans Memorial Park under the east picnic shelter, closest to the train.

Because class sizes are limited, officials do request that you pay for the classes as you register. The Sidney Chamber can accept exact change, check or credit card. Please stop in at 909 S. Central Ave. or call 406-433-1916, or go to the website at to register and pay with credit card.

Classes include:

• 9-10 a.m. Glass Fusion offered by Jessica Newman. You will create a rectangular 4”X6” sun catcher today, and will be able to pick it up at the MonDak Heritage Center in one week. Any age is welcome, with anyone under the age of 8 needing parental supervision. Cost: $35

• 10:30-11:30 a.m. Agate Jewelry offered by Jessica Newman. You will create an agate necklace; this is a make and take the same day. Any age is welcome, with anyone under the age of 8 needing parental supervision. Cost: $25

• 1:30-2:30 p.m. Acrylic Painting offered by Penny Filler. You will create an 11X14 picture using acrylics. Any experience level can participate. Any age welcome, but if under 12, they will need to have a parent also taking the class to help with parental supervision. Cost: $36.

. The 26th annual Sunrise Festival of the Arts takes place at Veterans Memorial Park in Sidney on July 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The festival brings a unique blend of music, food, children’s activities, writers and art classes, as well as more than 50 artisans and crafters selling their wares.

Admission to the event is free; however, if you purchase a button ($4 in advance, $5 day of event), you are registered for more than 50 door prizes given away throughout the day. This year’s grand prize is a gourd created by Carol Christensen.

Sidney is fortunate to have Shakespeare in the Park on July 7 at 6 p.m. The Billings Symphony will perform on July 8 at 7 p.m., with pre-events starting at 5 p.m. Both will be using the pavilion at Veterans Memorial Park.
