Concerts in Boise


There’s something magical about summer concerts, especially when you have so many great genres to choose from. The sounds, the sweat, the cold drinks…. it’s a special kind of nostalgia. If you haven’t been to many shows here, we definitely recommend checking out all our venues (and a few of the local drafts our artisans have been brewing up).
So go ahead and scroll the lineup, grab some tickets, and get ready to sing your hearts out! These artists are incredible and you might even find a new favorite musician.

Do you remember summers as a kid? Adventures were endless. You spent time building pillow forts, having water balloon fights, and riding bikes through the neighborhood. Then there were the BIG trips, like summer camp, vacations, and water parks!

Summertime is where epic childhood memories are born and these local events are all worth loading up in the car for. Your kids will look back on these memories for a lifetime and you’ll end up being the hero. Win-win!

Staying Active


This one’s for the gear junkies, granola girls, and anyone looking to get more of this fresh mountain air. If you keep an adventure bag at-the-ready, or need a reason to start, these events should be on your calendar.

New to town? Jumping into the active, outdoor community is one of the quickest ways to feel like you’ve put down new roots. Maybe it’s the endorphins, but people just seem to be nicer and it’s easy to cross paths with a friendly stranger.

So lace up those running shoes, or go barefoot if that’s more your jam (we won’t judge) and try out one of these upcoming outdoor events here in the Treasure Valley.

Thinking about moving?

The Boise events calendar is chock full of fun things for every age and interest, and if reading through the options gets you thinking about moving closer to all the action, be sure to visit our website to browse all the current real estate listings through Boise.
We believe everyone should love where they live and have spent the past 30 years making sure those transitions are smooth and stress-free. No matter if you’re buying or selling, closing on a home in Boise should be easy.
