Every New Year's Eve in Missoula has been pretty special over the past 25 years as the community has embraced the evening as a celebration of the Arts. This upcoming New Years Eve will be no different as Arts Missoula will showcase performances and activities in numerous downtown venues, the University of Montana campus and the Southgate Mall from noon until midnight on December 31, 2018.

If you are an artist, musician, performer, storytellers and others are encouraged to submit proposals for performances, exhibits, workshops and demonstrations of craft, skill or knowledge that embody the creative vitality of our local cultural traditions. And one of the best parts, all selected First Night participants are paid.

The deadline for application is July 2, 2018 at 5:00pm. Notice of acceptance will happen on or before August 31, 2018. Arts Missoula is also accepting proposals for First Night 2019 artwork and logo for admission buttons, posters, and program. The application is available at artsmissoula.org or you can call the Arts Missoula office at 406-541-0860.
