The warm weather today has me thinking about festival season!  Since this is Paul's site and he hasn't been in Missoula for several years, I thought it might be fun to see which festivals folks like best. 

I'll start with the River City Roots Festival  www.rivercityrootsfestival.com.  Super fun, free music, street party, three full days in late summer.  For me, it doesn't get much better!

Love Your Mother Earth Festival: (June 11, 12 &13)

We did have a good time at this festival & we plan to go next year & be better prepared.

My first time there I have discovered theses things:

The best bands start at 2am so take a nap so you don't miss it!

The kids camp activities were great.

If you do not enjoy loud music I suggest you go visit in the day time.

If you love loud music then feel free to camp there but be warned that the stages play until 6am.

If you can not sleep through music camp at the far end away from the stages.

River City Roots Festival - Missoula's Annual Signature Event

Saturday, August 28, 2010 - Sunday, August 29, 2010

Produced by the Missoula Downtown Association as the community's signature celebration of the city we live in, the River City Roots Festival has quickly risen to the top of Montana's must-see-list. Recognized as the 2009 Montana Tourism Event of the Year, Roots Fest attracts more than 10,000 individuals to the heart of the community for a variety of fun activities. This two-day free festival features first-class art and entertainment for both residents and visitors. With quality live performances on a big stage on West Main Street, a juried art show, entertainment for children and families, and a 4-Mile run through the heart of Missoula, Roots Fest brings a weekend of family fun to the community.

The Roots festival was a lot of fun.  I make sure to never miss that one and Kiddopalooza (or something like that) with all the kid friendly stands and games.  The next one is probably the Mavericks Brewfest or the Missoula Hemp Fest which are both in the beginning of Sept.
