Idaho City Days 2020

Saturday - Sunday, October 3 - 4

Idaho City Days, sponsored by the Idaho City Chamber of Commerce, is widely recognized as one of the premiere events in Idaho City. This open-air festival is in it’s fifth year and is held on the first weekend in October. It provides visitors of all ages and interests with the opportunity to meet a growing number of artists, crafters, antique dealers, and other vendors, and purchase their goods. In addition to shopping opportunities with our local businesses and the vendors, the Chamber and its fellow Idaho City organizations present an array of amusements, performances, wonderful food, and activities for the entire family. The 2020 event promises to be bigger and better than ever and will once again include activities such as a 5k Fun Run, Idaho City Historic Foundation Beer Garden, Photography Contest, Sunday Worship Services, Volunteer Fire Fighters’ Breakfast, historic buildings open for tours, and once again this year’s event will feature a full-blown Western Poetry Gathering sanctioned and hosted  by the Cowboy Poets of Idaho! Watch our Facebook page for details and make plans now to join the fun; there is genuinely something for everyone!
Our li’l mountain town is nestled in the Boise National Forest. It is a scenic 45-minute drive up Highway 21 from Boise and the Treasure Valley. The history of our town, our county and our state is vibrant in Idaho City. Weather in the month of October is traditionally mild, with average highs from 65-75.
