Organizers of a Memorial Day weekend tradition in western Montana are hoping you can be counted among the visitors.
Be sure to attend the 47th annual St. Regis Flea Market. It's a weekend of unique shopping Saturday through Monday, May 25-27, 2024, from daylight till dusk all three days in the St. Regis Community Park.
If you're looking for some fresh air, a bargain and maybe something in the odd or unusual categories, displayed with real hometown hospitality, St. Regis puts on a lively flea market with great people and affordable local amenities. And it won't consume your entire weekend. It's one of those eclectic shopping experiences where you realize you didn't even know you needed it or wanted it until you see it! It might be just perfect for you!

EASY TO FIND, EASY TO PARK

Now, it's pretty hard to get lost in St. Regis, but the community still does a great job with signs showing which roads to take, turns, parking areas, shuttle buses, etc. Just take Exit 33 off Interstate 90 and follow those signs.
Lots of good food, too, so come hungry. All in a real nice family park atmosphere.
There is also a large parking area along the north end of the flea market complex. It's free, but the high school kids guiding you to open parking spaces always appreciate a few bucks to go toward various St. Regis school ventures.

WHAT IT MEANS TO THE COMMUNITY

The St. Regis Flea Market is a fundraiser organized by members of the St. Regis Community Council to benefit the town and those who enjoy selling or buying in western Montana. If you find small communities that deliver big-time, hometown hospitality appealing, St. Regis is a place to bookmark and visit while it's springtime in the Rockies.
