Winter arrives in a flurry! November in Missoula ushers in snow, which sparks the community’s tangible excitement for the long-awaited arrival of holiday events. As the vestiges of warmth and fall foliage disembark, Missoulians swap their sun hats and sandals for caps and cozy sweaters – but bundling up doesn’t have to mean bunkering down! Whether you’re out on the slopes or catching the Brawl of the Wild, our winter sports season has just begun. Get out and ‘put your money where your heart is’ on Small Business Saturday! Local businesses offer specials, extended hours, snacks, and libations to enjoy while you shop and support the Missoula economy. The holiday season festivities kick off later in the month with the Missoula Downtown Holiday Window Decorating Contest. Take a stroll to get in the holiday spirit! November welcomes winter to the valley, reminding residents to slow down, stay warm, and appreciate the passage of another season. Join us! Whether you’re looking for local happenings this weekend or a little further down the line - be sure to peruse our events page to plan your future adventures.
