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.

There's This Place Where Every Trail is Worth the Trek

Three rivers and seven wilderness areas meet in Missoula, Montana, a small town with enormous personality. Visit Missoula and experience it for yourself.

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.

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.”
