Best Annual Festival

River City Roots Festival

The River City Roots Festival always feels like a celebratory finale to summer. The annual party on West Main Street caters to a wide swath of Missoula revelers—college students, families, professionals, wanderers and townies—with music, food, art exhibits, kids’ activities and a 4-mile run. Last year, Rodney Crowell seduced a streetful of people into singing Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” as the sun set, and the same kind of enchantment happens every year. This year’s Roots Fest runs August 25-26 and sports a lineup of favorite musicians including Anders Osborne and Malcolm Holcombe, who are bound to provide a satisfying soundtrack to the last of summer’s long, sunny days.
