There is something about fall that makes us here at Destination Missoula swoon. Maybe it is the crisp, cool fall mountain air, or maybe it is the unbelievable hues of orange and red that dot the mountainsides as the trees being to change. Saturdays are bustling with fall farmers markets and home Grizzly football games, and delicious harvest beers are on draft across town at the local pubs and breweries. One thing is for sure, though: fall is filled with fun, festive events for all ages. Here are some of our favorites, though be sure to check out our events calendar for more!
