First Night Missoula – Our 25th Anniversary Celebration

It’s December! Which means, it’s our favorite time of the year because we get to celebrate First Night with all of you. This year is the 25th Anniversary of First Night Missoula. We have rolled our prices back to $10 per button ($15 on NYE). An admission button gets you into ANY First Night event. Spotlight Missoula will not be requiring additional tickets. All you need is your First Night admission button. First Night Missoula is a community built festival that highlights talented local and regional musicians, performers, and other artists in several venues throughout Missoula. Join us this New Year’s Eve to celebrate 25 years of entertaining and engaging audiences of all ages through the arts. We have tons of new exciting performances this year including the UofM Circus Club, a Comedy Showcase, Bluegrass Showcase and more!

First Night Missoula requires LOTS of volunteer help.  We have volunteer check-in shifts, ushering and administrative shifts. We value our volunteers and their time! Each volunteer receives a free First Night Admission button to enjoy performances before and after their shifts. Interested in helping out? Thank you so much in advance.
