Arts Missoula proudly presents "Missoula on Main...and Beyond!" as we celebrate the remarkable 30th anniversary of enriching arts and cultures in Missoula. Join us on New Year's Eve 2023, from 12 noon until 12 midnight, for a day of exciting activities that cater to both the young and the young at heart. Whether you prefer free or ticketed activities, everyone is welcome to partake in this grand celebration. With over 30 unique events taking place throughout Missoula, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Embark on a musical journey with the enchanting melodies of the Missoula Symphony, or immerse yourself in the allure of a Midnight Masquerade Ball. Our diverse offerings ensure there's something for everyone.
We are very excited to celebrate 30 years of celebration of Arts and Cultures with you this year on December 31st.
As you may know, this is First Night, now called Missoula on Main...and Beyond.
There will be performances, classes, exhibitions and more. Plenty for adults and children alike. And since this year, NYE falls on Sunday, we will have some events on Saturday too!
We remain committed to offering most events entirely for free. Some events will require a ticket to attend. Come back here on November 27th! The first week of ticket sales will have discounts!

We will give away tickets to children's groups and other groups who would benefit from a free or reduced price. Just ask!
Know that when you purchase a ticket, you are supporting a working artist or culture maker in Missoula.
Early confirmations for the performers, Missoula Symphony, Drum Brothers, Celtic Dragon Pipe Band, All City Jazz, and we will present Spotlight, Dark Matter Variety Show in partnership with the Western Montana LGBTQ+ Center, and Ed Norton at the Galactic Masquerade Ball.
