What Concerts and Festivals Are Happening in Idaho this Weekend?

As of this last week, it is now officially summer. The weather is proving to feel like it as well. With the heat rolling in, many of us will be spending time on weekends cooling off at the lake, on a river, or finding ways to enjoy the summer weather. One great thing about the summer is that it brings amazing music with it. An outdoor concert on a summer night is one of the best things there is, and this week is packed full of shows to attend, but picking which one can be tough. There is more going on than just music festivals and concerts, but here are some options for what to do this weekend around Southern Idaho.

If you are a fan of 90s hip-hop and rap, then you are in luck as Nelly and TI will be performing this weekend at the Shoshone-Bannock Casino in Fort Hall. Tickets are still available, and while you are there you might as well rent a room and make a weekend trip out of it. Gamble, relax by the pool and enjoy a concert as well. It may get a little hot in there though, but don’t take off all your clothes, they will kick you out if you do.

Perhaps you weren’t able to get Highway 30 Music Fest tickets, or you are looking for something a little different, then the Boise Music Festival might be fitting for you. The beautiful thing about this festival is it is one day, so you can make it to both festivals if you choose. Lady A and Eve 6 headline this year’s lineup, with Walker Hayes, also being there. They have a wide variety of music and a great lineup. Make sure to click on the link for the full details and full breakdown of who you can see performing this Saturday.

If you decide to attend the Nelly and TI concert, perhaps you would like to make it two shows in one weekend, or perhaps you only want a country music concert, but Brad Paisley will be performing this weekend at the Shoshone-Bannock Casino as well. Tickets are still available. See two shows, or just see Paisley, either way, the Shoshone-Bannock Casino has a big weekend taking place.

There are tons of Farmers’ Markets across the Magic Valley, and the summer is the perfect time to enjoy shopping outside for delicious fresh grown products, as well as finding locally hand-crafted items as well. From the Twin Falls Market in the Magic Valley Mall to the one downtown on Main Street, you can find multiple markets in Twin Falls, or you can find others in the Magic Valley such as the one in Jerome or Hagerman. Click the link to see some of the locations in the area and find which is closest to you and the one that fits you best.

For concert lovers, this is the weekend you have been waiting for. Festivals, concerts, cars, and farmers’ markets, make it a great weekend to get outside and enjoy the first official weekend of summer. With so many options, it’ll be hard to figure out how to spread out your time and money. Perhaps a day in the pool, on a boat, or camping is more suiting for you. It is expected to be warm, so drink lots of water and try to stay as cool as you can. Have a great weekend.
