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!

FULL SCHEDULE. Everything kicks off at 12:00 pm Friday with special activities geared to the kids. Friday Hours: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm Saturday Hours: 9:00 am - 11:00 pm.

Gate Fees: While this is an all-volunteer run event, we still have to pay for advertising, equipment rentals, etc. As such, we have to charge, unfortunatly, a small fee for admittance. However, kids under 12 are always FREE!

Friday $3.00 per person, Saturday, $5.00 per person (12 yrs and older). Weekend packages are $10.00 and include admittance to the Grande Ball (on Saturday).
