Downtown Dine Local Week Returns January 22-28, 2024


The Downtown Missoula Partnership is hosting the fourth annual Downtown Dine Local Week to shift attention toward supporting food and beverage businesses in Downtown Missoula. The week-long promotion encourages the community to try something new and experience the diverse flavors offered at the restaurants, cafes, and bars found throughout the Heart of Missoula. Held January 22-28, there are over 100 local dining businesses in Downtown for Missoulians to discover and enjoy.

While nearly 20 locations are officially hosting special deals, promotions, and giveaways, all Downtown food and beverage businesses will benefit from the support of the community. By engaging with Downtown Dine Local Week, community members will be feeding their soul and fueling their neighborhood with additional dollars during a traditionally slower time of year.

“After the recent cold snap, we hope Missoulians are looking to get out of the house and have someone else cook for them,” said Jed Liston, Outreach Coordinator, Community Medical Center and incoming president of the Missoula Downtown Association (MDA) Board of Directors. “Downtown Dine Local Week is a great opportunity for Missoulians to grab their favorite people and check out dining locations they haven’t tried yet or haven’t been to in a while. Downtown offers a variety of dining experiences all within walking distance, so we hope the community takes the opportunity to hit up multiple locations in one night or throughout the week.”

Supporting businesses during Downtown Dine Local Week also means Missoulians have opportunities to win Downtown gift cards and other prizes. Promotions include Take-Out Tuesday & Thursday, Lunchtime Love, French Fry Friday, and Brunch-tastic Weekend. The Dine Local Fanatic Giveaway features a package valued at over $350 in goodies from participating businesses if folks keep their receipts and show they spent $100 or more throughout the week. Missoulians are also encouraged to do the Diner Bingo Challenge where folks are encouraged to show off their Dine Local Week adventures on social media. Those who get a ‘bingo’ are entered to win a $100 Missoula Downtown Gift Card. Follow @missouladowntown on Facebook or Instagram for more information on how to play along and win.

Downtown Dine Local Week is also a terrific opportunity for community members to use Missoula Downtown Gift Cards received in 2023. “Last year, over $540,000 in gift card sales were made,” said Linda McCarthy, Executive Director of the Downtown Missoula Partnership. “Missoulians have the opportunity to invest more than a half a million dollars into local businesses in the upcoming months – what a powerful story that would be if even half of that was spent in Downtown in the next handful of months. There are over 200 locations where Downtown gift cards are accepted, so we encourage those with a gift card to take the opportunity during Dine Local Week, and beyond, to put money directly into the hands of our local businesses.”
