Festival of Trees

Creating festive holiday experiences for all in the heart of Downtown Missoula.

The festival has been a popular community event for over 20 years and offers a variety of activities for all ages including public display of locally designed trees and holiday items.

With a focus on community health and inclusivity, the Downtown Missoula Partnership has pivoted the 2020 Festival of Trees to a multi-space, multi-day Tour of Trees with opportunities to win one of 10 designer-decorated trees this holiday season. Many of the trees will be viewable from outside of the businesses, and all of the hosts will have COVID-safe protocols in place, including required distancing of six feet, face coverings, and increased sanitization protocols. Public viewing of the trees is available during business hours from Friday, Nov. 27 through Sunday, Dec. 6, and everyone is encouraged to stay in small groups with their current close contacts.
