There’s nothing else like the Creston Auction: A field packed with the most unlikely treasures. , April 4 and 5, 2020, in Creston, Montana—12 miles east of Kalispell on MT Hwy 35. Half a dozen auctions at once. Thousands of people donating, consigning, and buying. Hundreds of volunteers. And all in support of the small, all-volunteer fire department in Creston, Montana.
The Creston Auction & Country Fair is the largest annual fundraiser for the Creston Fire Department and has been held each year in Creston, Montana, since 1966. This year’s event is April 3-5. The fire department’s 27 volunteers rely heavily on this benefit to support them in responding to close to 300 calls each year.
Calls have been steadily increasing, and Creston Fire has outgrown its 1960-era fire hall on Highway 35. The building barely houses modern fire apparatus, weekly training sessions for the volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians, and the department’s fundraising efforts. Land for a new station along the highway has been purchased, and Creston Fire has been raising money for the construction of Station 251. All money raised from this year’s Creston Auction will again go into the fund for that project.
The Creston Auction takes place over 3 days. Here are some of the details for this year’s event:
• The 54th Annual Creston Auction & Country Fair plus Auto, Marine, RV & Equipment Sale will be held Saturday and Sunday.
• Friday, April 3, is Consignment Day and the ONLY day that consigned or donated items will be accepted. Items can be consigned, meaning a large portion of the sale price goes back to the seller, or donated, meaning all proceeds go to Creston Fire. Items will be accepted from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the sale grounds in Creston.
• On Saturday, grounds open at 7 a.m. and the general merchandise auction kicks off at 9 AM, following the opening ceremonies. Bid tickets for Saturday cost $5 and go on sale at 7 AM. Attendees can also purchase locally made art and handcrafts, rummage sale items and homemade baked goods.
• The vehicle and equipment sale begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday. The day’s $10 bid tickets go on sale at 9 AM.
• There is no entrance fee and NO BUYER’S PREMIUM. Bid ticket charges go entirely toward paying for 24-hour security for the weekend. Bid tickets will also be available for purchase on Friday, April 3.
