  • For some reason, people from larger cities are often surprised when they come to Idaho and realize we have a great deal of culture to offer. One of the reasons we like Idaho so much is that you can enjoy the fantastic outdoor offerings and come back to Boise in the evening for world class cultural events. This list is just the tip of the iceberg, as the saying goes.

    Trey McIntyre Project and Ballet Idaho are two of the best dance companies in the area, but there are plenty of others equally deserving of your attention. The two professional theaters are the Idaho Shakespeare Festival and Boise Contemporary Theater, although there are dozens of community theaters that do awesome theater. The Boise Philharmonic is the home of the best musicians, many of whom play in various ensembles affiliated with the Philharmonic as well as some not affiliated. The Boise Art Museum is a traditional kind of art museum with both permanent and rotating exhibits. The Black History Museum offers a different view of Idaho History. And the Capitol Building is the quintessential picture of Idaho culture.

    So, while you maybe didn't come to Boise or to Idaho for the cultural events, you will certainly want to attend some when you are here.
