Annual Commemoration and "Bite of Butte" Fundraiser
2:30 PM
Uptown Fire Station
Annual Commemoration and Description:
The annual commemoration combined with a fund-raiser for the Butte Warehouse Explosion of 1895 will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022. The memorial ceremony will start at 2:30 at the memorial sculpture site at the Uptown Fire Station. Following the commemoration there will be no-host cocktails at Headframe Spirits. A “Bite of Butte” fund-raising dinner will be at the Elks Lodge, the doors will open at 4 P.M. and dinner will start at 5 P.M.

Dinner will be followed by a Dutch Auction and a “ONE-OF-A-KIND” Live Auction. We will also have two Heads or Tails games.

A local historical group, Butte Historical Memorials, Inc., has been working on a project to memorialize the heroes and victims of that dynamite explosion and fire 127 years ago.

This will be the first of many annual commemorations since the sculpture was installed at this site in August 2021! The sculpture is in place but we still have things to complete; we need lighting, landscaping and signage. Please help us finish the sculpture site by attending our “Bite of Butte “fund-raising dinner. Tickets are $30.00 per ticket and may be purchased in advance at the Butte Archives, Headframe Spirits and the Helsinki.
