Treefort Music Fest

Readers' Picks

When Treefort Music Fest isn't actively occupying downtown, it's planning to occupy downtown. Every year, Treefort brings hundreds of bands and ideas to the City of Trees, and it has matured into its role as the Boise City Department of Arts and History-appointed Boise Cultural Ambassador. Its various "forts"—which host film screenings, yoga, beer and more—have grown in size and stature: During his January speech at Boise State University, President Barack Obama even plugged Hackfort as one of the city's most innovative features. That's what we call some badass ambassadoring.
