BOZEMAN – The 8th Annual SLAM Festival returned to Bogert Park on Saturday and will continue through the weekend.

SLAM, which stands for Support Local Artists and Musicians, is all about bringing local musicians and artists to Bozeman to show off their skills and give them a way to get their name known.

Food trucks, craft booths, and various bands were at the park all day Saturday with more on the schedule for Sunday.

"Having people from all disciplines creates a sense of community that just builds on what Bozeman already has and is well known for. The most livable place becomes the most livable weekend,” said SLAM Festival Emcee Michelle Wolfe.
