Celebrate Glacier's Big Night Out!
The Backpacker’s Ball is an elegant evening in a spectacular setting – but leave your heels at home – this party welcomes your dusty hiking boots for the most magnificent celebration of the year for Glacier National Park.
Join us at the beautiful Dancing Spirit Ranch located between Columbia Falls and Whitefish with stunning views of Glacier's peaks. Bring your appetite to feast on the locally sourced menu and wonderful wine and beer selections.
Get swept up in the excitement of our Live and Silent Auctions, where curated collections of one-of-a-kind items and unique experiences and adventures will be found.
Wrap up the evening dancing to the live band as the sun sets and the stars begin to twinkle.
The Backpacker’s Ball is our signature event to support vital programs and projects in Glacier National Park, through your generous support.
Your help makes it happen. Your purchase of tickets to the Backpacker’s Ball will directly fund park education, preservation, and research programs.
