Saturday, March 23rd, 12pm-5pm @ Rhodes Skate Park
Skatefort is a celebration of skateboarding, music and community. Skateboarding and music have always gone hand in hand and our goal is to bring people together at a world class skatepark to celebrate our creativity. Everyone is invited to come skate the park together while listening to some amazing music. Skatefort is run by Boise Skateboard Association and Boise’s Parks & Recreation. Their goal is to improve the lives of Boiseans by advocating for youth and at-risk youth to enjoy the healthy activity of skateboarding in safe and accessible environments. Food vendors The Stil Ice Cream and Americana Pizza will be on site.

Band Dialogue VIII
Saturday, March 23rd, 5pm-6pm @ Celebration Circle at JUMP
Composed and conducted by Seth Olinsky (Cy Dune), Band Dialogue is a massive composition, experiment, and conversation that explores the sonics of many bands, stretched out across a space, playing simultaneously, part orchestra, part installation. Continuing in the lineage of large scale guitar and drum events by the likes of NYC composer Rhys Chatham and Osaka noise lords Boredoms, each version is adapted to the site and bands for something totally unique – bands radiate their individual glory while simultaneously expanding into one colossal sound.
Saturday, March 16th, 11am-3pm @ Ann Morrison Park, Northwest corner
Petfort is a pre-Treefort family-friendly event for you and your dog!
