Your Monthly Guide to Missoula: August 2019

Your Monthly Guide to Missoula: August 2019

So many events, so little time. Our events calendar is full, so we are here to help you out. In August, we celebrate the final month of summer in style. We float the river. We listen to live music and eat at food trucks in Caras Park. We dance our hearts out at River City Roots Festival. We drink beer on patios and buy all our groceries from local market booths. It is hot, and we love it. The University of Montana brings new Missoulians to their new home. August may be the last month of summer, but there is still plenty of fun in the sun to be had in this vibrant mountain town.
