Set at historic Fort Missoula in Missoula, MT, visitors to the Ol’ Wild West Fest will be stepping back in history to a time when every man carried a gun, cooking involved a wood stove (or open fire) and community gatherings embraced dancing!

Some of the fun and educational events planned for this August! Download the schedule here. Everything kicks off at 9:00 am Saturday. Hours: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm on Saturday, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on Sunday.
