Annual Banquet


The 47th Annual TroutFest Banquet will be held on Saturday, Feburary 23rd, 2019!  



Best-Western GranTree Inn in Bozeman, 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The TroutFest Banquet is MGTU's one and only annual fundraiser. One-hundred percent of all proceeds from the banquet goes towards MGTU's mission statement to conserve, protect, and restore SW Montana's cold water fisheries and their watersheds.

Similar to previous years, the banquet will use the online ticket and mobile-bidding host GiveSmart. Through GiveSmart mobile-bidding on our silent auction items will be an option for both attendees and non-attendees. Additionally, LIVE auction items will be available to bid on with an onsite Proxy Bidder the evening of the banquet on a first come, first serve basis. As always, we will work to ensure the mobile bidding option is easy for everybody to navigate. Stay tuned for more information on the 2019 banquet and get ready for the best trout party of the year!
