Plan your trip

TRAVEL TO MISSOULA. Missoula, Montana is located along the Clark Fork River near its confluences with the Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers in western Montana and at the convergence of five mountain ranges, thus is often described as the "hub of five valleys". Missoula is easily accessible by highway. Interstate 90 runs east-west through the Missoula valley, and Montana Highway 93 travels north-south. By air, you can fly into Missoula International Airport (with flights offered by Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, Frontier Airlines, Delta Airlines & United Airlines). Once you are downtown, you can easily walk between venues (snow or shine) or take our festival shuttle, and there is not a great need for a car while you are enjoying the festival events. It is easy to get around Missoula whether you decide to rent a car, take the bus, Uber, or call a cab. Missoula is a community that prides itself in making all attempts to reduce traffic congestion and provide eco-friendly transportation options.
