One of Missoula, Montana's most popular downtown events, the primary purpose of the Missoula Hempfest is to increase awareness of the many uses of industrial hemp as a viable economic resource and the alternatives available to us through healing, eating, building, thinking, and living. Missoula Hempfest is the annual fund raiser for Montana Hemp Council. It is held first Saturday after Labor Day in September. General Admission is $5 -- a raffle ticket is included with your general admission fee. No dogs, unauthorized vending or illegal activity are permitted at Missoula Hempfest. Schedule & Activities: Raffle, Educational Speakers, and Hemp Fashion Show. Missoula Hempfest began as the Missoula Hempfest and Alternative Living Faire back in the fall of 1993. It was started by a local hemp seamstress named Marianne Smith who owned the business Blue Heron Hemp. A team of 4-6 core organizers coordinate Missoula Hempfest and along with the help of 30-50 volunteers, are successful in making it one of Missoula's most popular festivals!
