Montana Book Festival 9/12-15 – Missoula

September 12 - September 15

For over thirty years, Missoula’s annual book festival has paid tribute to the tradition of writing in the West by bringing together authors from across the region. In 2015, what was the Humanities Montana Festival of the Book became the Montana Book Festival thanks to the generosity of our fiscal sponsor, Arts Missoula. Since then, the Montana Book Festival has been a grassroots organization, relying on individual donations, grants, corporate sponsorships, a handful of dedicated locals and the enduring support of the Montana literary community to survive. We have worked to build upon the event’s legacy while also reinvigorating the festival with new ideas and fresh perspective.


$15 all-access festival button, or $5 for each event.

Buttons can be purchased at Fact & Fiction Books at 220 N Higgins in the week leading up to the festival.
