Treefort Music Fest

The Treefort Music Fest takes place March 22-26. In addition to a wide variety of music at dozens of venues around town, they also feature storyfort, filmfort, foodfort, hackfort and more.

“Since the festival’s inception, Boise has played host to thousands of bands traveling from within the Treasure Valley or as far as Western Europe, the Middle East and Australia. Just like the uniqueness of every tree, each Treefort Music Fest features a wide variety of musicians and bands – every Treefort moment has its own soundtrack.”
