My daughter got an invite to a friend's birthday party last week. We've been meaning to go swimming at Currents since the weather turned cold but just haven't made it happen so it's perfect that the party will be held there. When my daughter mentioned that she had her birthday at Currents earlier this year, reminded me that my other daughter decided to do the same over the summer, and noted that now we'll be going to this party for her friend, it made me realize that closures to The Hub and Flying Squirrel have left Missoula with limited options when it comes to party places for families.

You can hold your event at Turner Farms

It's a bummer that we've lost a few places to entertain the kids around town but have you heard about this spot as a cool new option to hold an event of your choosing? I saw Turner Farms post on their Facebook page that they just held their first private event of the season in their Market Garage. They transformed the space into a fabulous-looking venue that can be used for various purposes.

Have they been doing this before and I'm just now hearing about it?

I wasn't sure if this was something that Turner Farms had offered before so I messaged them through Facebook. It turns out that this is totally new this season and a year ago at this time the space was just a dirty garage.

We have partnered with Sonora Shack this holiday season (and beyond!) to offer events in our great space with Sonora’s food! It’s a unique, relaxed, fun and a totally local experience! ~ Turner Farms Facebook Page ~

Book a spot before they're gone!

It looks like it would be a great place to hold a function! It also appears that you might want to look into it if you're interested in booking as the Facebook post says they have, "a few spots still available."
