For more information on the schedule, including festival workshops and lecture series information, please visit The festival is held at the Original Mine Yard. This unique venue is a mine yard which has been converted into a public park. The headframe and other mine buildings are still on site. It is a great place to take in scenic views of Uptown Butte while being surrounded by buildings of historical significance. The stage that will house An Ri Ra performances sits within a headframe. Headframes are reminders of Butte’s rich mining history and can be found dotting the skyline of Butte. It is a structural frame above an underground mine shaft, and was once used to lower miners, mules, equipment and supplies down the shafts and bring up load after load of ore.
