Boise Hempfest is a Thing, and it’s Coming This April

green marijuana in hand

Marijuana is illegal in Idaho.

Is that stopping ganja fans from celebrating the green stuff in Boise? Nope!

Before we go any further, I’m not writing this blog to condemn or condone marijuana usage. Again, it is illegal in the state of Idaho. I’m simply here to inform you of a really interesting event that you may not be aware of coming to the Treasure Valley.

Boise Hempfest 2017 is a “Cannabis Education Event” coming to Julia Davis Park on Saturday, April 15th. The event is officially licensed through the original Seattle Hempfest, is family friendly, and will include plenty of entertainment like live music, bounce houses, and fire dancers.


You’re probably thinking “Well what’s the point of even having this event if weed is illegal in Idaho?” That’s true, but there are thousands of activists across the state fighting to get marijuana legalized in the Gem State. Until that happens, we recently reported that Boise is spending a ton of money on weed just across state lines in Oregon. While that only leads to trouble here in Idaho, it sure is boosting the local economy in the small Oregon town.

The folks at Boise Hempfest are well aware of the legalities of marijuana, and are taking the law very seriously. A legal disclaimer from their website:

According to Idaho Statute 37-2732C(a), it is ILLEGAL to use or be under the influence of a controlled substance in public. In addition, per Boise City Code, smoking tobacco is also prohibited in public parks.

The Boise Police Department will likely be in attendance and Boise Hempfest does not wish to see anyone arrested or cited while at our event. Anyone smoking a substance of ANY KIND will be asked to leave the park.
