Once a year the folks over at Warriors and Quiet Waters put on an event that is without a doubt, one of the best times you will have all year long.

Of course, we're talking about the annual Warrior Taste Fest, which is an evening dedicated to food, drink, art, and raising money for Warriors and Quiet Waters. This year's event happened this past weekend over at the Gallatin Country Fairgrounds and was sold out.

I had the privilege to attend the last two Warrior Taste Fests, and I can't think of a better evening.

This year was no different, as all of the artists in attendance were extremely gifted. From different painting techniques to sculptures, the energy and creativity that went into the works was something that everyone should see in person. There were a few different wildlife scenes, which most definitely captured the whole Montanan vibe.

However, there was more than just wildlife, as one artist was finishing up a beautiful painting of the American flag.

This was the 4th year of the Warrior Taste Fest, in which all of the proceeds go to help Warriors and Quiet Waters. If you would like to learn more about the organization, check out their website or follow them on social media.
