Best of Missoula

Our 19th annual celebration of what makes this a pretty cool place to be

Summertime in Missoula means hot weather, floating the river, backyard barbecues, hoping for no wildfires and, of course, the Indy’s annual Best of Missoula. This year’s edition—our 19th, if you’re keeping count—marks another record-breaker, as it’s our biggest yet at more than 100 pages.

But while we’re pretty proud of how it turned out, the real credit goes to you. Yes, you. After all, each of these winners was voted on by our readers. All we did was tally the votes and write quippy summaries about why each honoree is so outstanding. So, before you flip directly to see if your buddy took Best Bartender or your favorite guitarist was named Best Musician, take a moment to celebrate your hard work. Even better—you can celebrate with us.

Consider this your formal invitation to join us Thursday, July 11, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Caras Park for our Best of Missoula Party. Admission is free, and there’ll be food and drinks and live music from the Lil’ Smokies (this year’s Best Band) and the BoxCutters. We look forward to seeing you there.
