Your Monthly Guide to Missoula: August 2022

Two words ring true during this warm summer month: Live Music. From local acts at charming venues, to world-renowned performers at our gorgeous outdoor amphitheaters, Missoula boasts a killer music scene. After spending a sunny day on the river, or exploring the expansive outdoors, head downtown to discover great local bands and tasty craft beverages. And though we can't get enough of the music in our rockin' river town, Missoula summers are famous for more than just the awesome lineups. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy rodeos, downtown art walks, sporting events, educational conventions and more. Our events calendar is always full, so we are here to help you out. Here are our picks for a perfect August in Missoula.
