The Bert Mooney Airport serves a region rich with history, culture and recreation. At the turn of the 20th Century, Butte was a booming copper camp that ranked among America’s fastest growing and most influential cities. Today, the city still hosts a large-scale copper mining operation and has earned the moniker “The Festival City” for celebrations that pay homage to Butte’s rich history and status as a cultural melting pot. The An Ri Ra Montana Irish Festival, Evel Knievel Days and the Montana Folk Festival are samplings of events that draw throngs of visitors during the warm months. Butte is also a hub for Southwest Montana’s bountiful attractions. The city is situated along Interstate 90 halfway between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Within a short drive from Butte are challenging ski areas, internationally recognized golf courses, blue-ribbon trout streams and breathtaking wilderness areas.
