It's that time of year when, even despite the cold, everyone has sunshine and summer on their minds. Here in the Treasure Valley, looking forward to summer is kind of "the next best thing" that we have to look forward to. Often times in Boise, summer is when some of the greatest concerts of the year take place because of our awesome outdoor venues and events.

Staple events like Boise Music Festival take place, as do many stand-alone shows that soon, will begin to be announced more and more!

Lucky for us there are already some shows slated for 2023 that we're counting the days down for! 

Major Concerts Coming to the Boise Area in 2023

When it came to the sheer number of concerts, 2022 was a year that the Treasure Valley won't soon forget. But 2023? There are some BIG artists looking to make a splash in Idaho!

Ready for this Idaho fair's big announcement? 

Country music star Chase Rice will be at the North Idaho Fair this summer and Idahoans are SO READY for his return to the Gem State.

The concert will be taking place on August 22nd at the Findlay Arena, in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Even if you don't have plans to attend the fair, we think that catching this show while taking a weekend off in beautiful Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, could make for an amazing Idaho vacation this summer!

The Western Idaho Fair has also been a place to annually see some of the best names in music as well-- let's look back!
