Newly renovated Caras Park to welcome back first Garden City Brewfest since '19

David Erickson

It’s been a long three years without the state’s oldest and largest beer festival in Missoula, but the annual Garden City Brewfest is finally back on Saturday, May 7 to welcome a crowd to the newly renovated Caras Park downtown.

The event will feature over 70 beers, ciders, hard seltzers and wines. It will take place from noon-8 p.m. and will feature local food trucks and live music from three Missoula-based bands: Tom Catmull’s Last Resort, Mudslide Charley and Joan Zen.

“Often imitated but never replicated, Garden City Brewfest is the oldest running Brewfest in Montana,” said Josh Eder, the Missoula Downtown Association’s board president. “That’s not a shock considering the number of local craft breweries nestled in the heart of Missoula.”

The first celebration was held in 1992 and the event was gifted to the Missoula Downtown Association in 2003. Since then, it’s served as the nonprofit organization’s largest fundraiser for projects and programs, including improvements to the downtown area.
