Your Monthly Guide to Missoula: December 2023

As December unfolds and envelopes Missoula with snow, the city is blanketed with a tangible excitement. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has permeated the valley, enchanting residents and visitors alike. From the captivating downtown seasonal displays to the myriad of seasonal events, Missoula truly transforms into a winter wonderland for all to enjoy! The merrymaking commences downtown with Holidays on Higgins - picture floats, bonfires, carolers, the Missoula Makers Market…and there’s a rumor Santa (and perhaps the Grinch!) will be in attendance. Be sure to pop into the annual Missoula Holiday Made Fair – makers from all over the state set up shop in the Adams Center, the building is packed to the brim with local craftsmen and their goods, truly encapsulating the spirit of the season. December is a nonstop Christmas jamboree – from local pop ups to concerts, recurring events to seasonal celebrations, there’s no shortage of yuletide revelry on our events page.
