Shoreline Arts Festival
Held on the last weekend in June, the Shoreline Arts Festival is a cornerstone community event drawing 10,000 attendees. There is something creative and fun for everyone at this free two-day festival of the Arts!

Arts & Culture Events
Our premiere performance/community programming, Arts & Culture events are scheduled during the winter months as a great way to go out, beat the cold, and bask in the warmth of community.

Family Performances
Early exposure to the arts is so vitally important for a child’s development, and it’s a ton of fun. Enjoy a show together as a family, or encourage your young ones to take the stage themselves in our annual Missoula Children’s Theatre performance.

Concerts in the Park
On Wednesday evenings in July and August, rain or shine, the concerts play!  Bring the family, friends, a picnic and enjoy the free show, featuring a wide range of musical and theater performances.

Artists in Schools
Providing Pre-K to12th grade arts education throughout the Shoreline School District since 1993, Artists in Schools is one of our proudest achievements. We raise most of the program’s funding at the annual Gala for the Arts, with additional support from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, government and foundation grants.
