Treefort is back and social media is buzzing already. I saw hundreds of photos, videos, and experiences from the Wednesday kick-off downtown Boise. It doesn't matter what kind of musical appetite you have, Treefort has something for everyone.

If that isn't overwhelming, let me list you what else is happening at Treefort.

  • Alefort: A Cider extravaganza this year highlighting drinks from across the Pacific Northwest (no cover).
  • Comedyfort: A week of stand-up comedy at it's best.
  • Filmfort: Films and about film.
  • Foodfort: Everything from tasting to how to instagram your food. I need that one!
  • Hackfort: Digital humanities conference and all about Tech.
  • Kidfort: All about things for the kids.
  • Storyfort: All about writing with a massive celebrity speaker list.
  • Yogafort: Yoga, dance, meditation and just a mental detox! This is gonna be a favorite.
  • Skatefort: "Ripping and Gripping" is what the headline says. All about skating.
