Concert Goers Guide:

Alive After 5 (AA5) is Boise’s longest running, all-ages, FREE outdoor summer concert series produced annually by Downtown Boise Foundation. AA5 fills The Grove Plaza Wednesdays, June 19th through July 31st, 5-8pm, with a mix of nationally and internationally touring artists and local talent.

AA5 celebrates diversity and inclusion. Music is a shared experience that brings people from all backgrounds together; we strive to create a community event where everyone feels welcome and a part of Downtown Boise.

A few notes to make your free concert experience the most fun:

·       PLAY! DT Plays will be onsite! Kiddos and adults alike can enjoy free games and fun while listening to the concerts. Also make sure to visit partner booths at each concert for games, giveaways, and merchandise.

·       STAY COOL! A variety of cold beverages, including N/A, will be offered for sale. Beer, wine, and seltzer options require a wristband - don’t forget your ID! Tips collected at the bars benefit that concert’s partner non-profit. A water fountain is also on site – and the splash pad is on!

·       HAVE FUN! Dance! Stomp! Clap! Fans of all ages will be enjoying the concert right alongside you – make them feel welcome!

·       AA5 FOR ALL! Accessible bathrooms are provided, and most furniture is movable. Staff are ready and happy to help! Accessible parking stalls can be found throughout downtown and in the nearby public parking garages. Medical services will be on-site; the info booth serves as a N/A bar and family reunification station.

·       Take alllll the photos! Post them to social media & tag @DowntownBoise #AliveAfter5Boise

·       Remember that the pavement will be very hot – we suggest that you leave your pets at home.

·       There is no smoking of any kind allowed in The Grove Plaza.

Tips For Charity:

The Tips for Charity Program is a much-loved tradition that goes hand-in-hand with Alive After 5. Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund and City of Good, two local nonprofit organizations, are 2024’s beneficiaries of all tips collected at the bar during Alive After 5 concerts. Tips can be donated at the point of sale on The Grove Plaza when purchasing merchandise or beverages.
