The Treefort Music Fest will not take place in 2020. Instead, organizers hope to pull off the event next year in late September.

The annual festival brings together live music, food, beer and specialty events centered around activities like yoga for a a five-day event in Downtown Boise.

This year’s festival was just days away in March, when event organizers called it off. The COVID-19 pandemic began impacting Idaho with the first confirmed cases. At the time, Treefort producer Duck Club Presents hoped to postpone to September of this year.

Now, the festival says it will return September 22-26, 2021.

“It has become clear that hosting Treefort in 2020 is no longer viable for us and March 2021 is
feeling too risky for an event as big and dynamic as ours, given there are so many unknowns
currently regarding the trajectory of the pandemic,” Eric Gilbert, Treefort Festival Director said.
“We’ll be hard at work over the next year helping our community and ourselves get through this
and looking forward to seeing everyone at Treefort 9 in September 2021.”
