If it's summer in Missoula, you know that basically means it's "festival season." Sure, big cities have their fair share of festivals but as far as mid-sized cities go, Missoula has an abundance of festivals that puts other towns to shame.

Coming up in August, Missoula will be hosting another Hip Strip Block Party and this year, the festival will celebrate a special anniversary in music with a ton of musical acts for block-partiers to enjoy. Check out the details below courtesy of BFK Presents, and for more info, check out their Facebook page. But first, things first.

Tips for this Missoula Party

  • It's on a Saturday so you won't have to pay for parking, but pay attention to the streets reserved for permit parking for local residents.
  • Consider riding your bike to the event.
  • Wear sunscreen and stay hydrated.
  • Wear your dancing shoes.

Now, on to the good stuff:
