Overview and Purpose:

Every year, we host a lively event for adults where teams of three dress up compete for the title of Bozeman’s best spellers (and best dressers!). This dynamic and interactive event attracts spellers and observers of all skill levels. Whether you’re dressed up to play or just come to watch, it’s an event not to be missed.

Enjoy appetizers and a no-host bar for all participants and audience members.


Qualifying All-Spell Round
All spelling teams compete simultaneously in qualifying rounds based on a tournament format. The teams with the highest accumulated points during the all-spell round will advance to the finals. This means more spelling with no early eliminations.

Free Word Points
Teams can purchase free word points prior to the competition to help them get closer to the final round. These points can be redeemed during the all-spell round only.
$250: 1 Point
$500: 2 Points
$1,000: Advance Pass*
*Raise $1,000, and you can secure your team’s spot in the finals. But from there on, actual spelling skill is required to win!


Want to be a part of the event, but don’t want to spell? No problem, “bee” a spectator to cheer or heckle the teams for just $25. Tickets available for purchase at the door.

Note that this is an adult-only event, so please, no one under the age of 18.
