Discover Kalispell would like to welcome the Montana Association of Chamber Executives to Kalispell for your spring conference. While you already have your suitcase packed, why not enjoy an extended stay to see all that is new and happening in and around Kalispell.  Here are five reasons why you should consider it:

  1. Entertainment at Kalispell’s newly opened venue or one of the local’s favorite music scenes.
    Check out The Wachholz College Center that opened in late 2022 and is located at the Flathead Valley Community College.  They have a great lineup of national caliber music and speakers series; it’s also where the Glacier Symphony performs. Kalispell has a lively music and entertainment scene, where musicians feel right at home and find inspiration from a variety of places, from wide-open spaces to snow-capped peaks. You are sure to find inspiration that inspires you.
  2. Make the most out of Springtime in the Flathead.
    When it comes to the four seasons of Montana, spring tends to get overlooked. But this season is one of the brightest and most colorful times of year in Big Sky Country. Wildflowers start blooming and days are getting longer, with sunshine covering every corner of Kalispell and northwest Montana. Spring in Montana is prime for wildlife watching, biking, hiking and golf, as well as planning your trip to coincide with your MACE conference.

  3. Explore the Heart of Downtown Kalispell
    We’ve got to hand it to Charles E. Conrad, Kalispell’s founder—he knew a good thing when he saw it. And while it looks different than it did in the late 1800s, the potential that Conrad saw has come to life and today it’s a mountain town with beautifully historic roots, a vibrant downtown and plenty of things to do right here in Kalispell, Montana.
  4. Eat and Drink Like a Local
    No matter your dining style or budget, Kalispell has diverse options for enjoying Montana’s culinary scene.  With a heritage firmly rooted in agriculture and ranching, today Kalispell’s dining landscape consists of gardens, farms, bakeries, farmers markets, coffee shops, restaurants, food trucks and grocers, many of who carry, sell and serve local products or incorporate them into their menus.
  5. Know all that there is to do in and around Kalispell.
    There is no shortage of things to do and places to explore in and around Kalispell.  From our storybook downtown to Glacier National Park and everything in between, you can adventure, play and relax to your heart’s content.   Just in case we haven’t mentioned a favorite of yours, check out more!
