Attending the festival


general admittance

Attend the Montana Book Festival 2019 by purchasing a $15 Festival Button, available at Fact & Fiction Books in the weeks leading up to the festival. Festival Buttons come with discounts to local bars, breweries, coffeeshops and stores.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to hear when those buttons will be available!

Don’t want to attend more than one event? Single events are $5 at the door, just see a festival volunteer for entry.

Where is the festival? All over downtown Missoula! Last year we took advantage of sixteen different venues, all within walking distance of each other. This year the events will be mainly at The Public House, The Dana Gallery, The Residence Inn Marriott (“The Merc”), Downtown Dance Collective and The Missoula Art Museum.

We are proud to announce that we will have a variety of workshops available this year! This is your chance to learn from professionals everything from how to make sure your memoir “works,” to writing funny poems! Workshops are $35, or gain access to all for $200.

Where is the schedule?

Right here!

We use a scheduling website called Sched. Attendees and participants alike can log in, create profiles, update their photo and bio, create personal schedules and interact with each other. The mobile app is our favorite way to access Sched.


Remember, we don’t exist without the excellent and supportive literary community of Missoula, Montana. THANK YOU.
