It’s officially summer! Which means it’s time to get outside and enjoy all the fun, food, and friends that the Treasure Valley has to offer. We compiled a list of must-do events for you to check out this season!
“Western Collective is a collection of unique experiences designed to delight our community and feel like home away from home. Our space includes a brewery, coffee shop, taproom, beer garden, Supply Company, and Swim Club. We have 16 beers on draft, Frosé (a delicious rosé slushy), a full espresso bar serving Doma coffee, and delicious wines from the region. We also are home to the Weenie Wagon, gourmet hot dogs and brats, that are served daily. We open every day at 7am and stay open until midnight on the weekends. Western Collective – where Western isn’t a direction so much as a state of mind,” explains Melissa Levick, Head of Marketing and Design.

Lucky Peak State Park
Aside from being one of the most popular recreation spots in the Treasure Valley, Lucky Peak State Park also frequently hosts events and you don’t’ want to miss the Source to Snake event happening on August 24.
The Treasure Valley is honored to host, New Yorker, Christopher Swain, who will be making his way to Idaho this summer to help promote his ongoing mission for water-quality advocacy. Invited by the Idaho Business for the Outdoors, Swain will be swimming the entire length of the Boise River over the course of several weeks.
Swain has plunged through thousands of miles of rivers and streams, many of which were less than swimmable—all in the name of water quality. And while we can be proud of the efforts we’ve made for the Boise River in the last 50 years, we need to continue to be mindful in the coming years as the population grows.
On August 24, from 10am to noon, Swain will be at Lucky Peak’s Spring Shores Marina. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet (and swim with) Swain as he continues his fight for clean, healthy, and swimmable water for everyone! The event will feature collaborations with the Boise Bike Project, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, the Idaho Business for the Outdoors, educators around the Valley, and more!
Jack’s Urban Meeting Place is quickly becoming the hot spot for year-round events, and this year is no different! Their Beyond the Block event, which started June 20, is an event designed to celebrate community and diversity. Beyond the Block will be held every third Thursday and will feature various musical acts, different themes, cultural dances, and of course… food trucks!
JUMP also hosts a meet and greet event called Connect on the Deck, which is a public meeting space where community members, travelers, and visitors can socialize with one another in a welcoming environment. Connect on the Deck features tasty tap takeovers and delicious caterers.
