Here’s all you need to know for Treefort 2024! ⤵️

How to Get Around Treefort  


Valley Regional Transit will operate the Treeline shuttle bus service Wednesday 3/20 through Saturday 3/23. It’s a super fun and easy way to zoom from venue to venue.  This year there’s two Treeline buses running Wednesday 3/20 – Saturday 3/23. Look for the decorated bus stops throughout downtown Boise. The bus stop for Julia Davis Park is located in front of the Idaho State Museum. BONUS! There will be bands performing on the Treeline – lineup TBA!

Treeline Shuttle Schedule:

Wednesday: 6pm – 11pm
Thursday: 6pm – 11pm
Friday: 6pm – 11pm
Saturday: 2pm – 11pm
Sunday: No Service 

The Treeline is free for anyone (no festival wristband required!) PLUS, anyone with a festival wristband can ride any regular Valley Regional Transit bus route for free during the duration of the festival. Just show the driver your wristband.

Note: There is no bus service on Sundays.


Biking is a super fun and easy way to get around the fest, especially since Julia Davis Park is right on the Greenbelt! Boise Bicycle Project will be back with two bike parking stations in Julia Davis Park to support bike commuters during Treefort, so you shouldn’t have a problem getting a VIP parking spot for Main Stage.


There are so many efficient and affordable ways to get from place to place during Treefort. Grab your skateboard, blades or rollerskates to get around, and head to Skatefort while you’re at it! Boise also has electric scooters that you can take from venue to venue.

✦ BONUS! On Sunday 3/24 from 2-4pm, join Valley Regional Transit for the Underground Disco Derby! Bring your roller skates and meet underground at Valley Regional Transit’s Main Street Station. Get ready for a Grand Prix Race with Treasure Valley Roller Derby followed by an open free skate with live DJ set. 


Those boots are made for walkin’, aren’t they? Explore Treefort on foot and discover even more! Who knows what you will hear, see or experience while walking around downtown Boise. If you’ve never been to Treefort, rest assured knowing that our downtown is very flat and walkable, and all the venues are just a few minutes from each other!

✦ PRO TIP: change your shoes each day and consider adding insoles. Your feet will thank you.


Let’s be real — parking can be a real hassle during Treefort. If you have to drive, bring your friends along or hop into your friend’s car and park near downtown, then walk the rest of the way in. Boise State will offer daily parking in the Brady Garage for just $5/day to festival goers, or you can also utilize parking garages in downtown to park your whip for the day. Note that these parking areas are for day use only, so if you plan staying out late and/or sippin’ on Alefort’s finest…it’s best to make other arrangements.



✦ The easiest way to Treefort is with a five-day Festival Pass. This will get you into all music venues, fort events (with the exception of Foodfort dinners), and everything in between.

✦ Don’t want to wait in line? You’ll want a ZIPLINE, which allows you to skip to the front of the line at every music venue…and Alefort!

✦ Around for only one day? Get yourself a Single Day Pass to allow yourself to explore Treefort for just one day/night.

✦ Just want to hang in the park? We don’t blame ya! The free section of the park includes Alefort, Kidfort, and shows at The Bandshell. Buy a Main Stage Pass and you can also see all performances on the Main Stage and the Hideout Stage on that day! Discover the all-new Lookout Lounge at Treefort Main Stage! It’s an exclusive 21+ retreat nestled in Julia Davis Park, strategically positioned between Main Stage and Hideout Stage. This special hideaway is where you can sit down and relax, sip on your favorite drinks from a dedicated bar, and enjoy access to private bathrooms. Lookout Lounge pass must be purchased in addition to a festival access pass (eg. Festival GA, ZIPLINE, Single Day or Main Stage pass)

If you are looking to see shows over more than two days, the best deal is going ALL IN.


✦ A 5-day pass is about $50/day to 400+ artists from across the country and globe!

With a 5-day Festival Pass, you can attend Comedyfort, Filmfort, Hackfort, Yogafort, Artfort, Dragfort AND catch all shows happening at 25+ venues. 

If you’re in the 9-5 grind, no problem! You have plenty of time to catch events during the week to make it worth your while. There are over 100 events between 5pm and midnight during the week…then it’s the freakin’ weekend!

If you are still getting a feel for Treefort, walk around and check out the free forts & festivities!

Alefort is a great place to start. Sip and sample local and regional beer, wine, cider, and cocktails. Alefort is located in Julia Davis Park. 

✦ You can also experience Artfort, Comedyfort and Dragfort within Julia Davis Park, plus enjoy live music on the infamous Gene Harris Bandshell

Experience the forts of the fest. You can access Artfort, Dragfort, Kidfort, Skatefort, Storyfort, Music Talks and Podfort without a Treefort wristband. Please note some events may require a cover charge or Fort Badge.

Looking for more music? Catch a free show at the Cyclops Stage, Payette Brewing, Lost Grove Brewing and Boise Brewing!


Already looking forward to crackin’ a beer at Main Stage?! Pre-purchase your Treefort Tokens!  

Starting today, you can pre-purchase Treefort currency in packs of 12 tokens or 30 tokens and save a few bucks to spend on drinks or merch! Buy now and pick up your tokens when you pick up your wristband at Julia Davis Park. 

  • 12 pack tokens $30 (plus taxes + fees)
  • 30 pack $70 (plus taxes + fees)

Token packs will be available for pre-sale only through Monday, March 18th. During the festival, you can purchase individual tokens. Tokens are used at Alefort and all bars within Julia Davis Park. 

✦ FUN FACT! 12% of beer sales goes directly to the park! Drink beer = support your local parks.


If you have already purchased a Treefort Pass (5-day, ZIPLINE, U21, Main Stage, or Single Day), you will pick up your wristband at the Wristband Pick Up Booth at Julia Davis Park. There will be no pass sales within the park, only pre-purchased passes will be available for pickup within the park. 

If you have not purchased a festival pass & plan to buy one during the fest, you can:

  • Buy a pass online via your phone and pick it up at the Wristband Pick Up at Julia Davis Park
  • Buy a pass at one of the two Downtown Boise Bodegas: JD’s Bodega (161 N Capitol Blvd) or Bodega Boise (1007 W Main St)


This one may be the most essential of them all. The Treefort App is your guide to *everything* at the festival. Get a real time view of what is happening at any given moment of the fest, build your schedule, share your schedule with friends, check the line at venues, get directions to venues, and so much more.

You’ll be doing a lot of walking & dancing so be prepared to run wild all five days of the fest. Treefort tip: change your shoes every day of the fest! 

Afternoons & nights might get a little chilly and let’s be honest, it could definitely snow at least once during the fest. If you’re in need of some Treefort swag or an extra layer, check out our merch store in Julia Davis Park! 

We have lots of outdoor spaces and stages at Treefort. Maybe the sun will be shining in your face, maybe the breeze will blow your hair around, or maybe you just want to look cool. Either way, bring some sunnies & a hat, or buy yourself a cute new Treefort hat at the merch store! 

Don’t forget to stay hydrated! Main Stage only serves draft alcoholic beverages in steel pint cups and aluminum cans to eliminate waste and Alefort serves beverages in 8oz or 16oz steel cups. Buy a Treefort water bottle or steel pint cup or BYO (steel cups must be 16oz)! 

Consider bringing a lil bag for your phone, wallet, merch purchases and other belongings. Don’t have a fanny pack? Treefort has your back (or rather, your hips). Check out our merch store at the fest and scoop up a cute fanny pack, purse or shoulder bag! 

Five days of rocking out will take a toll on your earholes! Protect yourself from hearing loss with your own pair of reusable earplugs or find some near the Main Stage, provided by our pals at St. Lukes.

For those who will be attending a Yogafort class or two, please bring your own mat.

What if you see Channel Tres at the K.Flay show but your phone’s dead so you can’t take a selfie?! Tragic. On-the-go charging will save your life when you’ve lost your friends or can’t remember when Briston Maroney goes on. (FYI: it starts at 9pm on Saturday 3/23 at Main Stage!)
