"From an informal gathering in 1989, to being ranked top three small-town Pride Festivals by Google, Boise Pride Festival (BPF) has continued to grow focusing on expansion and sustainability. Our vision has been to create a community in Boise that consistently celebrates the diversity of sexual orientations and identities constantly. Our festival calls the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as the whole state of Idaho, to come together and unify. In 2017, the Boise Police Department estimated that around 35,000+ people attended Boise Pride Festival events."
With headline entertainers Steve Grand and Sasha Velour, Boise Pridefest hosted Idaho’s largest Pride event of the year, paving the way for community involvement and ally support.
