THE EXPERIENCE: Backpacker’s Ball


The Backpacker’s Ball is Revelry’s first non-profit event and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of one of our local communities in a big way!

Helping the GNPC as Glacier Park’s sole fundraising outlet, the Backpacker’s Ball is the marquee event of the summer in the Flathead Valley of Montana.


One night only under the stars of the Big Sky State, 250 people will congregate at a beautiful ranch to celebrate one of our country’s beautiful treasures: Glacier National Park.


Revelry’s duties leading up to the event a year in advance are to:

  • Ensure strong promotional and communication plans are in place

    • HINT: with Revelry’s help, the 2019 event sold out four months in advance, setting a record and placing the bar very high for future events!

    • The challenge with this event is that the guest demographic is older and not historically savvy with email communication and ticketing platforms. We rely on old school forms of outreach, coupled with budding online communication to reach potential guests.

  • Manage ticketing

  • Venue layout

  • Vendor communication, contracts and activation logistics

  • Event budget

  • Fun of show

  • Volunteer commitments

  • Working with auction package curator

  • Manage auctioneer relationship to ensure evening donations are record breaking each year!


Stay tuned!
