2023 Out To Lunch Performers

Each summer, thousands of people come through Caras Park in the Heart of Downtown Missoula, Montana on Wednesdays at lunchtime and Thursday evenings to enjoy two of the longest standing traditions in Downtown Missoula – Out to Lunch and Downtown ToNight.  As part of this tradition we hire both local and out-of-area talent to provide music throughout each event.

We are looking for dynamic bands who are family-friendly, fun, energetic, and will truly add to the atmosphere of our events. Please note that we are not looking for individual solo artists or individual instrument players. Bands must be able to play for three hours (three, 50-minute sets).
