Unplug And Play Missoula

Screen Free Week 2018!

April 28 – May 5

Let's Move! Missoula is encouraging Missoula families to "Unplug & Play" for one week!  This is a challenge to families to limit recreational screens (tv, game boxes, smartphones, tablets, etc.) so we can all spend more time outside and reconnect with friends, families and our neighbors. 

Join us at the April 29 kick-off event (details below), and check out this 7 Days of Play Family Guide. It is jam-packed with free and low-cost activities happening all week long, April 28 – May 5, around town! *
*Correction: Missoula Fencing’s FREE beginner class is on Friday, May 4th from 6:30 – 7:30pm
