Downtown ToNight

2020 UPDATE: Downtown ToNight Cancelled

With a focus on community health and safety and compliance with State of Montana and Missoula City County Health Department Reopening Guidelines, the Missoula Downtown Association (MDA) has chosen to forego Downtown ToNight for 2020. 

The openness of Caras Park and the popularity of Downtown ToNight make it nearly impossible to implement all the guidelines needed to produce the events in a manner that allows the Missoula City County Health Department (MCCHD) to accurately trace contacts of an attendee diagnosed with COVID-19. The admission-free and open-seating amenities do not lend themselves to ticketing and assigned seating.

We know this may come as an incredible disappointment to our community. Please know that this decision was not made lightly; hours of discussion on ways to implement this beloved Downtown event occurred. We cannot express our gratitude enough for the community’s support of our event and all of Downtown. This year may not look like a typical year, but we are all in this together to make lemonade out of lemons.

As an alternative, we have re-structured our summer experiences to encourage smaller gatherings by implementing pop-ups in Caras Park starting on Tuesday, June 16. We will be facilitating local food trucks in small pods to serve the Missoula community in a way that is more right-sized for current guidelines. Please visit our Downtown Pop-Ups page for more information.

Caras Cash makes the perfect gift for friends, family and employees. This money is good for food and beverages during Out To Lunch and Downtown ToNight. Purchase Caras Cash at the DMP office located at 218 E. Main Street or by filling out the form linked above and sending it to the DMP office.
