Here Are the Details on Obama's Trip to Boise (Including How to Get a Ticket)


Details are beginning to emerge regarding President Barack Obama's visit to Boise, scheduled for this coming Wednesday, Jan. 21, his first trip to Idaho since February 2008 when then-candidate Obama was waging his first run for the White House.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The tickets will be limited to one ticket per person. The tickets will be distributed beginning Monday, Jan. 19 at 4 p.m. and will continue until 7 p.m. (or until they run out) at the Albertsons (Bronco) Stadium ticket office at Boise State.

The public will be able to enter the Caven-Williams Sports Complex (next to the stadium), beginning at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 21. No bags, signs or banners will be permitted. All attendees will walk through airport-like security. No overnight camping will be allowed on the premises leading up to the event. 

The event is slated to begin at 2:45 PM.
