More than 40 stores in downtown Missoula have vowed to stay open until 7 and 8 p.m. through December 22nd to help you get your holiday shopping done. Of course nearly all of the breweries, bars and restaurants will be open later hours.

Last-minute shoppers are encouraged to support locally-owned businesses, keeping spent dollars circulating throughout the Missoula economy. Downtown Missoula is a delightful scene with beautifully-decorated windows, holiday décor, and the Missoula Christmas Tree.

Other benefits of shopping Downtown are:

  • Free Parking evenings & weekends throughout Downtown
  • Easy-to-use parking kiosks (license plate number required): accepts credit cards and coins
  • New smartphone parking app PASSPORT: pay for parking from the warmth of your car
