Treat yourself to a fun night with your favorite downtown retailers, services, watering holes and restaurants by browsing the listings below and making a plan to enjoy the places that make Downtown Boise the special place that it is.

Experience First Thursday!

Visit Downtown Boise the First Thursday of each month to experience art, shopping, dining, live music, family activities and entertainment in a special and unique way you’ll only find Downtown.

Our local merchants plan exciting, engaging in-store events including food and beverage tastings, local art exhibits, and trunk shows. Stop into your favorite establishment or check out someplace new!

Events typically run from 5:00 – 9:00pm, but each merchant creatively plans their own event so check each listing below for individual hours and details.


Supersized First Thursday's return this summer!
This includes additional roving performances, music, and activation throughout all of downtown. Downtown Boise Association (DBA) will partner with performing artists and nonprofit organizations to create an enhanced experience for community members visiting downtown between 5pm – 9pm on the first Thursday of May, June, August, September, and October 2022.
Anyone interested in performing at a future Supersized First Thursday can find the artist call here.
