Downtown Missoula Events and Shops

The heart of Missoula. Many events, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and entertainment businesses line the blocks of this vibrant downtown area just blocks from the Fly Shop. The Missoula Downtown Association is a good place to start as you virtually tour what Missoula has to offer.


You can’t miss Caras Park under the Clark Fork River bridge on Higgins. This pavilion is home to many special events like Out To Lunch, Downtown Tonight, Brewfest, and concerts.


May through September you can find most of the city strolling through three different markets downtown; Farmer’s Market, People’s Market, and Clark Fork River Market.


The Missoula Marathon is one of the premier events in the country. Thousands of runners converge on downtown Missoula for this spectacular course. Our guides have enjoyed a day fishing with some weary legged runners  after the race.


First Friday Missoula is an opportunity to tour art galleries around the downtown area, meet the artists, and enjoy fellowship with local patrons.
