Treefort is just around the corner!
First Thursday has become an annual tradition for us; it’s the day that kicks off Treefort month! In March 2020 that First Thursday was meant to lead into celebrating our ninth festival, but alas thoughtfully painted windows sat on empty businesses for weeks (maybe even months!) after we first postponed Treefort 9. As we’re reemerging from the darkness with better tools, science and data, we’re committed to finding a path forward with excitement, and your safety at the forefront.
Just like Treefort, there’s something for everyone this First Thursday, September 2nd. Walk around and check out work from local artists who have hopped back on ladders, outfitted themselves with paintbrushes and transformed Downtown Boise with Treefort feels once again! Be sure to stop by Woodland Empire parking lot for the official Treefort Pre-Party with vaccines, free beer and funky soul vibbbbbes.
Now, a year and a half later…let’s get you Treefort Ready (again!):
