This free, two-day festival celebrates all types of Idaho recreation, including bikes, boards, bocce, beers, basketball and lots, lots more. From workshops to demos to kids' activities, Boise Rec Fest will educate the rec neophyte as well entertain the weekend warrior--and maybe teach both a few tricks and tips.
Two separate stages will house a gaggle of local and touring bands. The main stage features Boy Eats Drum Machine, a turntable wizard from Portland, Ore., along with Boise mainstays Finn Riggins. Ella Ferrari, the Boise BBoys and Workin' On Fire will hold down the youth stage. Boise Rock School, the Freedom Footbaggers, the Pat Harris School of Dance, the Dance Arts Academy and the Metamorphosis Performing Arts Studio will also preform.
