NOTE: We have been unable to obtain the Fort for 2015. As such, there will NOT be a Fest in 2015. We are, however, currently making plans for September 2016 for the next Ol' Wild West Fest. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes (we tried really hard to get the venue for 2015)!

Set at historic Fort Missoula in Missoula, MT, visitors to the Ol’ Wild West Fest will be stepping back in history to a time when every man carried a gun, cooking involved a wood stove (or open fire) and community gatherings embraced dancing!

FULL SCHEDULE. Everything kicks off at 12:00 pm Friday with special activities geared to the kids. Friday Hours: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm Saturday Hours: 9:00 am - 11:00 pm.

Gate Fees: While this is an all-volunteer run event, we still have to pay for advertising, equipment rentals, etc. As such, we have to charge, unfortunatly, a small fee for admittance. However, kids under 12 are always FREE!

Friday $3.00 per person, Saturday, $5.00 per person (12 yrs and older). Weekend packages are $10.00 and include admittance to the Grande Ball (on Saturday).
