Western Montana Fair Gears up for August

The dog days of summer are upon us, and with the sultry weather comes the sweet smell of popcorn and funnel cakes wafting through the air, the flavor of juicy Vikings and fruity snow cones, music playing, children laughing, and all the sights and sounds of the annual Western Montana Fair! Join in on all the fun and festivities August 7-11 at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.
For the third year in a row, the Fair will be Free Admission to keep it easily available to all, and accessibility is expanding this year with free-to-attend arena events each day in addition to countless additional free and affordable activities for all ages throughout the week.
New this year is the “Green Thumbs and Pie Crumbs!” theme to promote a commitment to sustainable practices and reduction in waste material. The Western Montana Fair is proudly joining Missoula’s ZERO by FIFTY initiative, which aims to reduce 90% of the material we send to the landfill by 2050. Look for the “Green Thumb” logo and be sure to utilize stations around the venue for all recyclable/compostable serving materials, which vendors will be using this year more than ever!
Also new – or rather, “renewed” – this year will be the renovated Commercial and Culinary Buildings. Through thoughtful planning and massive efforts over recent years, structural improvements such as an elevator, restrooms, ventilation, windows, lighting, roofs, doors, siding, and floors will make these spaces useful for another 100 years. The MADE Fair Marketplace returns to the remodeled Commercial Building in 2019, with over 100 local artists and opportunities to support local nonprofits.
Come help support our eclectic community and enjoy delicious food, impressive exhibits, thrilling events, and all the exuberant fanfare that the Western Montana Fair has to offer at one of Midtown Missoula’s signature events of the summer!
