You know the usual drill—we dig through the seemingly endless list of local events going on in the upcoming month, and pick out our favorites for your Monthly Guide to Missoula. But the usual drill doesn't quite work for April 2020, as folks stay home and businesses adjust their usual operations to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This means we have to take a pause from some of our usual picks—concerts downtown, local beer on brewery patios, packed galleries along our First Friday art walk—but thanks to this innovative community, it doesn't mean we have to forgo Missoula events and activities altogether. With a little WiFi, and a whole lot of creativity, we can still enjoy a piece of Missoula from home. Here are some of our top picks that we know you'll want front (couch) seat tickets to in April.
Mondays & Wednesdays at 1pm: Online Bug Encounters with the Missoula Butterfly House and Insectarium
Sundays at 1pm: Virtual Happy Human Painting Time with Dave
(Most) Thursdays at 7pm: Live Concert with Tom Catmull & Travis Yost...& The Electric Cactus
