Responsible Entertainment During COVID-19

Responsible Entertainment During COVID-19

A weekend in Missoula without live music and craft beer feels downright unnatural, we know. But as it turns out, we’re a pretty communal community, and most of our favorite forms of entertainment go against the rules of safe social distancing. That’s why local businesses and artists have worked tirelessly to find new ways to bring Missoula to us. Here are a few creative alternatives we are especially grateful for.



There’s This Playlist

Listen along at home to some of the great local musicians and visiting musicians that shaped (or were supposed to) shape Missoula’s music scene in 2020.


Lucky for us, The Roxy Theater has gone virtual!  With “Roxy & Chill”, the Roxy Theater has partnered with filmmakers, studios and distributors to bring exclusive films to your living room!


Special Offerings for Arts, Culture and Crafts

While we can’t explore galleries, celebrate First Friday and craft with friends in person, Missoula’s art scene is offering innovative ways to keep the creativity flowing at home. 

Zootown Arts Community Center (ZACC) has a weekly podcast, live stream art events and paint-your-own-pottery program with curbside pickup. Check out the Last Best Print Fest – with plenty of virtual events to keep your spring fever satiated!

The Missoula Symphony Association is hosting Brews with The Beard – tune in every Friday on Facebook and Instagram to hear about the weekly Missoula beer and symphony pairing!

The Radius Gallery is welcoming visitors by appointment! Visit their website to schedule a visit.

The Clay Studio of Missoula is offering new says to stay engaged with ceramics via their website!

Montana Area Music Association is a Facebook page where you can find other live stream events such as concerts, art classes, cooking classes and more.



Many of us are burning through books while hunkering down at home, making this the perfect time to send some extra love to our local bookstores offering online shopping and delivery.
