Festivals, Concerts and Events

Nature usually plays first chair here, but Montana is home to and draws some of the West’s finest musicians, inspired by the rugged Rocky Mountains, the sparkling night sky and the beauty around every bend. We also host some of the best music festivals west of the Continental Divide.

Check out our event calendar for information about music events happening throughout Montana's Glacier Country.

River City Roots Festival — Downtown Missoula

Hit the streets for the Garden City's favorite, admission-free live-music event featuring solid tunes, local food vendors, art, family fun and outdoor recreation.

Missoula International Choral Festival

This Missoula festival takes place every three years and brings choirs from around the world to the Garden City. Since its inception, the festival has attracted more than 5,000 singers from 40 countries to the cultural hub of Montana, connecting diverse backgrounds and traditions.

Crown of the Continent Guitar Workshop and Festival

Drawing inspiration from the Northern Rocky Mountains (an area referred to as the Crown of the Continent region), the workshop and festival brings guitar greats to Flathead Lake Lodge. This weeklong event includes workshops, lessons and nightly concerts in the heart of Glacier Country.

Montana Baroque Music Festival

Located in the aptly named community of Paradise, the Montana Baroque Music Festival presents three concerts, with performances from world-renowned musicians.

River City Roots Festival

Missoula’s signature event, River City Roots is a two-day festival featuring a juried art show, family activities, a 4-mile walk/run and a free all-day music stage with local artists and headliners. This wildly popular street festival was founded in 2005 and is most appropriately described as a “celebration of all things Missoula.”

Festival Amadeus

Montana’s only week-long classical music event, Festival Amadeus brings world-class musicians to the mountain community of Whitefish. The festival features seven evening concerts, including an “open-air” performance in Depot Park and an evening with the artists.
