TREEFORT 2017 FOCUSES ON FUN AND COMMUNITY
March 14th, 2017

It’s that time of year when Boise comes alive with music, yoga, art, and entertainment: it’s Treefort 2017. From Wednesday, March 22, to Sunday, March 26, the city of Boise will be overrun with people passionate about community and art. If you’ve never attended the local festival before, we promise that you’ll find a “fort” that is perfect for you.

The “trunk” of Treefort is music, according to the organization. But the event is much more than a chance to see live musical acts. Treefort describes itself as “a celebration of what makes Boise great.” From beer to comedy, you’ll have an opportunity to meet others who share your passions. We’ve picked out four forts below that may interest you. Take a look!

Alefort, March 24-26

This free event is open to the public that are 21 years and older. You can enjoy sipping the creations of local breweries and craft beer stores, which pair perfectly with Foodfort. There will be numerous options available to try, including small batch offerings of limited brews.

Comedyfort, March 22-26

Get ready to laugh at Comedyfort! You can enjoy a few chuckles or even some belly laughs at this fun-filled event. Comedians from around the country and from right here in Boise will be taking the stage to tickle your funny bone.

Filmfort, March 22-26

Cinephiles, this one is for you! Enjoy emerging cinema, Q&A with filmmakers, and workshops at the Owyhee in downtown Boise. Filmfort passholders will have priority access to all films, while Treefort ZIPLINE and GA wristbands will have first-come-first-serve access. Single screening tickets will be available for purchase at the door for $10 if available.

Kidfort, March 24-26

Have kiddos? They can enjoy Treefort 2017 at Kidfort! These two days of Kidfort provides unique programming specifically for young ones, and integrates into other forts. For example, Fortcraft is a real life Minecraft that provides a place for kids to use their imagination and build whatever they want out of cardboard. If your child is a bit too young to build, then you’ll still find an activity they’ll enjoy, like a performance by the musical group Play Date.
