Are you one of those fly by the seat of your pants people? Are you creative? Do you like to build things or work with your hands? If so, then we have a great event for you. It’s the Spontaneous Construction Building Contest, sponsored by Home ReSource here in Missoula.

The Spontaneous Construction Building Contest will be held Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 29. This annual building contest is a great way for local contractors, artists and do-it-yourselfers to show off their talent. Contestants will be given six hours, and materials from Home ReSource, to make their creations come to life.

This event isn’t just for participants. Everyone is welcome to watch. This free event features live music, local food and beer, and many other fun activities for both kids and adults. So go check it out and cheer on your favorite team, or just enjoy local creativity.

If you are interested in participating in this event, you will want to act fast because space is limited! Get your team together and register today at
