Exciting Growth for Boise in 2020

The new year is bringing even more growth to Boise, something we’re most excited about! Being one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., Boise is continuing to expand with a new sports team, new businesses, and changes within our local government. We love seeing our beautiful city boom, here’s a couple of things that we’re looking forward to in this new year!

With games starting in February and running throughout the entire spring season, we’re sure you’ll find time to attend a game or two.

If you’ve been driving down Eagle Rd right next to the I-84, chances are you’ve seen slow developments being made. We’ve known for a while now that a TopGolf-like facility is planning to take up space of what was previously recognized as the Farmstead. The facility will be a part of Eagle-View Landing, which will sit on 52-acres along Eagle Road. Although we still don’t know whether this will be TopGolf or a similar facility, either way, we’re excited for an addition to Boise’s entertainment scene!

Treefort Festival Continues to Grow

Originating in 2012, Treefort has since grown into a diverse festival that now incorporates aspects of music, food, beer, comedy, stories, tech, film, and yoga. Treefort was even named City of Boise’s Cultural Ambassador for being an event that represents Boise in the most positive light. Over the past 8 years, Treefort has continually expanded the event inviting bigger artists and enhancing the overall experience. We’re excited to experience the growth of this years festival, hosted over March 25-29.
