The 11th annual River City Roots Festival will take over downtown Missoula on August 26 and 27th.

A big stage is put up on West Main Street for the event and features live music all weekend. Plus, there's always a fine art show, lots of stuff for kids to do and no downtown Missoula event is complete without a fun run. The Roots Run is 4 miles through Missoula.

The fest typically draws around 15,000 attendees and there's no cost for admission. There will be a beer garden thanks to the good people at the Badlander and plenty of concessions will be on hand, including El Caz, Taco Treat, Vietnam Noodle and Ina's Indian Tacos just to name a few. Ina's will also be at our Blaze Backyard BBQ!
