Kalispell Downtown Association

The Kalispell Downtown Association was established in 2005 as a 501c6 membership organization.

The mission of the Kalispell Downtown Association is to promote and improve the downtown area so that it remains a viable contributing component of the Flathead Valley. This means promoting our downtown merchants, making sure our downtown looks clean and inviting and creating a collaborative effort to get the correct mix of businesses that will complement each other and make every business in our downtown successful. All of this takes incredible hard work and financial resources.

Visitors and residents will find a quaint place featuring specialty retail shops, delectable restaurants, as well as historic architecture and museums. Start your day with a relaxing visit to one of the downtown spas, and then browse through our Downtown District where you will find unique home furnishings, fine jewelry, family fashions and antiques before stopping in one of incredible restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

In addition to our wonderful shops and restaurants, Historic Downtown Kalispell is home to a number of special events throughout the year sponsored by the KDA and other community organizations. In the summer months, Tuesday evenings and Wednesday noon you can enjoy “Picnic in the Park” at our downtown Depot Park with live music and food vendors brought to you by the City of Kalispell Parks and Recreation. Participate in the Fun at Thursday!Fest, a street festival where you will find live music, food vendors, artist and craftsmen and a beer and wine garden every Thursday evening from late June through August. In July enjoy the exciting Art in the Park, sponsored by the Hockaday Museum of Art and the Glacier Rod Rally, brought to you by Flathead CARE. Fall brings “A Taste of Kalispell” which benefits the Museum at Central School. All year, walking tour books are available to guide you through our historic downtown architecture. Other events include the holiday parades, the Art Walk on the first Friday in December, New Year’s Eve family fun, non-alcohol, First Night celebration, the Chocolate Walk in February and the 5K – 10K “Run Through History” in the spring of each year.
