In case you haven't noticed, there is a Kettlehouse Brewery in Bonner, and this new amphitheater will be next to it. The venue will feature a permanent stage, standing pit, reserved seating and general lawn seating along with a state of the art sound system.

The Missoula area has been in desperate need of a venue of this size for quite some time. Often times we are asked how Missoula gets passed up for shows in favor of Great Falls, Bozeman and Billings. Part of the reason is lack of an appropriate venue for touring bands, maybe now we won't get passed up as often.

The new venue is scheduled to open in May of 2017.
