Mateo’s First Treefort Music Festival
When I last lived in Boise, Treefort Music Festival didn't exist so this year being my first spring back in town I got to attend my very first Treefort. I've been to a lot of music festivals, but there's something different about what Treefort offers. Call it an infatuation with my city or just an appreciation for seeing something this awesome shut down the streets and bring people together--I had the time of my life. I love seeing this city so vibrant and even amidst the spells of rain--some heavier than others, Treefort goers didn't let the party stop. I was introduced to some really great new artists (shouts to you, Lizzo and Holiday Friends) and nothing excited me more than having new music to listen to. This all was a great excuse to get to spend nearly entire weekend with some of my best friends, too!
Within Treefort were two of my favorite things...beer and food! Alefort and Foodfort offered a wide array of options when it came time to eat and drink. Handcrafted beers were represented from breweries all over the Northwest. Some of my favorites were:
- Killer Bee's from Melvin Brewing (check it out HERE)
- Blackberry Boom from Meriwether Cider (check it out HERE)
- Sacrilege Sour Cherry from Rev. Nats (check it out HERE)
All of these are brewed in the Northwest but outside of the Treasure Valley--the good news for me and anyone hoping to try these is that they can be bought at Whole Foods or the Boise Co-Op.
If you didn't make it out to Treefort this year, I'd highly suggest you make plans to next year. I can't wait to go back.
