Symphony in the Park—FREE Concert

Description:

For more than 17 years, Missoulians have set aside the second Sunday in August as the day for Symphony in the Park. This year is no exception—mark your calendars for Sunday, August 14th at 7:00 p.m., Caras Park, for this year’s concert, “Music for the Soul.” Bring your lawn chairs and blankets for a summer evening filled with the sounds of Aretha Franklin, John Williams, Stephen Sondheim and much more. We will again have our food vendors and a bar, to purchase food and drink.

This FREE outdoor concert is a favorite event as summer winds down and we hope you’ll join us!

Since 2019, we have partnered with the Missoula Food Bank and Community Center for a food drive to help nourish our community. This evening’s donations of non-perishable food items will go directly to the Food Bank.

One in four Missoulians now relies on the Food Bank for support. Please help us meet our goal of collecting 2,000 pounds of food items during this event.
