local garden city events
Please join us for our first Annual Garden City Visitors Bureau – Garden Party Gala
Our goal for the Gala is to raise awareness of the GCVB and our vision. Through online, silent, and live auctions during the event, we hope to raise funds for the Assistance League, Vineyard Food Bank, and Bells for Books.
WESTERN IDAHO FAIR
The Western Idaho Fair boasts a summery mix of time-honored fair events (4-H competitions, bake offs, fried indulgences) with intoxicating fun for the whole family (big-name concerts and a hopping fairway). It’s no wonder this is the biggest, most well-attended fair in Idaho!
BOISE MUSIC FEST
This massive one-day music festival attracts thousands of people to Garden City every summer to see acts like Pit Bill, Tone Loc, and about 50 local artists across multiple stages. You’ll hear everything from rock to hip hop, country to acoustic. But there’s more than music here! Check out the carnival rides, food vendors, and activities for kids.
CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING
Welcome the holidays with one of Garden City’s oldest and most popular traditions. With twinkling lights, live carols, and the big guy himself, this free family event brings out the kid in all of us. Wrap your hands around a cup of hot cocoa, help us count down, and lose yourself in the magic of the season.
Fun fact: In 2015, Garden City became the first certified Bee City USA in Idaho and the 13th in the nation. That means we’re committed to creating a sustainable habitat for these amazing creatures. Want to know more? Bring the family to our annual celebration of the bees and butterflies that help feed our planet. We’ll have tasty treats, live music, kids’ activities, and plenty of information on how you can help pollinators thrive.
