When budgeting constraints your Spring Break to Idaho don’t despair, Boise has it covered by offering some worthwhile events.


  1. Are you after music? Start Spring Break off with Boise’s very own Treefort Music Fest. This event rose from 2011’s melting pot of negativity and turned into a wonderfully unique event captivating the Boise downtown area. With over 50 bands such as Mt. Joy, Vince Staples and Nappy Roots, to name a few, you will be able to find your beat and live in it. The Festival runs March 20th to March 24th. Ticket prices vary from $90- $365.
  2. Dance brings stories to life through complex movements. Visit the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts and experience the culture of ancient China through Shen Yun. This performance transports the audience to a time of rich spiritual heritage. Shen Yun goes beyond dance and incorporates lavish costumes, and an orchestra that will hold your attention all night. The performance will be held March 26th – 27th. Tickets start a $86.
  3. Enjoy the thrill watching the Idaho Steelheads skate against the Rapid City Rush. The match up will be held at the CenturyLink Arena March 27th and 29th at 7:10pm. Tickets start at $25. Grab a seat, drink and watch as players battle to see who can own the ice those nights.

It offers wonderful scenery that transports you out of a city and allows for an escape. Then, when you want to dive back into social life, stop by one of the many bars in the area. Each one has its own style making it hard to have a dull night. Not after nightlight? Downtown Boise offers an many cultural attractions. There are museums and interactive meeting places.
