The Grove Plaza is one of Boise’s leading outdoor venues, hosting over 60 events each year that range from large-scale concerts to cultural festivals. Located in the heart of downtown Boise, The Grove Plaza is the city’s most prominent public venue. With hundreds of people passing by the Plaza each day, and over 250,000 more visiting it for events, The Grove Plaza is probably the single most visited site in Idaho’s most visited city.

The Grove Plaza was transferred to the City of Boise in late 2018. The Boise Centre – Boise’s convention center – manages and maintains The Grove Plaza. For inquiries regarding renting The Grove Plaza, please fill out the Boise Centre’s Event Inquiry Form.


Engraved Bricks

Personalized engraved bricks helped fund The Grove Plaza’s construction in 1986. Nearly 19,000 engraved bricks pave The Grove Plaza. Come read the names, messages, and stories told through the engraved bricks. Find your brick via The Grove Plaza Brick Finder.


The Grove Plaza Fountain

You haven’t lived if you haven’t run through the fountain at The Grove Plaza! Because it’s situated at ground level, children and dogs love to play in it, and you’ll even catch adults biking through on a hot day. The enhanced fountain has a dozen programmed routines, including a mist feature, as well as integrated lighting effects for evening shows and night time ambiance. The fountain is in operation 8:00am-11:00pm, 7 days a week, May – October (weather permitting).
