The Western Montana Fair and Rodeo is a Missoula tradition.  For 100 years the Western Montana Fair has been entertaining and educating Missoula, and this year will not disappoint you.  From Dock Dogs, to the Demolition Derby and the Missoula Stampede PRCA Rodeo events.  The line-up at this years’ fair is going to be full!

Exhibitors at this years’ fair will be on display throughout the schedule.  There are sure to be some impressive items submitted this year.  From quilts to canned soup, some of the most talented people in Western Montana have submitted their works this year.

The Western Montana Fair and Rodeo runs Tuesday, August 5th through Sunday, August 10th.  There are events and live entertainment daily as well as carnival rides!  The rides are open:

Tuesday 3pm  to close, Wednesday – Thursday and Friday 12pm to close, Saturday 11am to close and Sunday 12pm to close.

Some foods you just do not want to miss at the Western Montana Fair this year:

  • Lemondairy – the delicious combination of lemonade and ice cream.
  • Huckleberry everything!  This year the huckleberry season is abundant and that means there will be plenty of huckleberry items at the fair for your enjoyment.
  • Vikings – A deep fried delicious meatball on a stick.
  • Lots of local goodies to try out!

I am sure there are plenty of other great treats at the Western Montana Fair this year to taste, and fun events to watch.  Such as the ZZ Top and Jeff Beck concert!  Oh and this year….The Missoulian Newspaper is reminding folks that they can take zero-fare Mountain Line Buses to the Western Montana Fair all week long!‪#‎MissoulaMoves‬ ow.ly/zYAzw
