What Else Is Happening At The Party?

Lots of delicious food options at our sponsor, Bittercreek Ale House, including a late night happy hour following the party!

We’ll be giving away Radio Boise swag and gift certificates for Bittercreek’s late night menu, and you can check out the artwork done for the block party by Sector Seventeen artist Mawk1 which will be at our silent auction in December.

Radio Boise doesn’t happen without the support of the community – that means YOU, and these wonderful local businesses that are cool enough to want to make this awesome party happen!
We are thrilled to have Boise Electric Bikes on site with us at the block party so you can check out the wonder that is the electric bike, and meet the wonderful family that runs this business – we are so thankful they are on the Radio Boise airwaves as underwriters, too!

We are also very thankful to Idaho Sports Medicine Institute for supporting community radio and the local biking community by sponsoring this event again this year!

Bittercreek Alehouse has supported this event from the beginning and once again will be pouring from New Belgium kegs, serving up Rattlers! You can even purchase a steel cup from Treefort Music Fest for your draught, and $1 of the proceeds will go to Radio Boise. If you see folks with special Bittercreek wristbands sneaking down to the cellar, stop by the Radio Boise info booth and see if you can find out how to join the club.

Also thanks to longtime community radio supporters Crazy Neighbor – you can find them wandering around the block party stocked with costume gear for your Tour de Fat!
DragonflyCity Peanut Shop, and Mixed Greens also stepped up to make this party happen and we love them so!
