MDA Member Socials/Events

Member Event Updates

The Missoula Downtown Association is happy to announce that we are bringing back in-person networking socials! Our next Downtown On Tap will be at the VRTX Fitness/Apex Bistro on Tuesday, June 29 from 5-7 PM. Eat, drink and be merry as we hear from VRTX on how they have fared through opening a new business in a pandemic. There will be snacks from Market on Front and a drink on the house all while networking with fellow members.

Please follow CDC and local Health Department COVID-19 guidelines as well as VRTX’s guidelines for mask wearing and please stay home if you have any symptoms.

Networking Socials

With two networking socials a month, there is always an opportunity to meet other members. Our Luncheons on the second Tuesday of the month are a great way to network while hearing information from other members. Downtown on Tap, the last Tuesday of the month, gives you the opportunity to visit a member business and network in a more casual setting.

Membership Luncheon

Membership Luncheons are currently postponed until further notice. Held at a different member business the second Tuesday of every month from 12 to 1 pm. Luncheons provide networking and promotional opportunities and feature informative speakers on topics affecting Downtown businesses and the community.

Downtown On Tap

Held at a different member business on the last Tuesday of every month from 5-7pm. This is a great opportunity to socialize, network, enjoy drinks and appetizers, and showcase your business.

Large Social Events

The MDA offers three large events a year exclusively for members, a BBQ, Holiday Party and Annual Awards Banquet.

BBQ

In July, we typically throw a huge BBQ in Caras Park to celebrate the summer in Downtown. Members are encouraged to bring the entire family for socializing and down-home cooking by our members.

Holiday Party

Our Christmas Party has been a can’t-miss event for many years. It is our holiday social event where hundreds of members come together to mingle and partake in the holiday spirits.

Annual Awards

Our Annual Awards Banquet, held in January, recognizes Downtown Champions from the previous year.
