Getting Here

The Boise Rec Fest team encourages you to recreate to Ann Morrison Park rather than driving, such as biking, running, walking, kayaking, tubing or rafting.


Biking - Thanks to the Idaho Transportation Department's Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, bike racks will be available within the festival. PLEASE, do not lock your bike to a tree in the park.

Automobile - Parking is available around the park, including the St. Luke's Health System parking lot at the corner of Americana and Shoreline (click HERE for a map), in the parking lots south of River Street between Pioneer Street and 9th street and downtown (click HERE for details). Please do not park by the softball fields - there is a tournament happening and we don’t want to disturb them.

ADA - First come, first serve ADA parking is available inside the park via the Americana entrance. Click HERE for a map.

Lost/Missing Children

Check with the St. Luke's First Aid Tent or festival headquarters for found/missing children.

PLEASE Tread Lightly and Leave No Trace

Please help us keep Ann Morrison Park and the surrounding neighborhood unaffected by Boise Rec Fest.

  • Throw your trash in the garbage, not on the grass.
  • Recycle plastics, aluminum, steel and paper products.
  • Do not bring glass beverage containers into the park.
  • Try not to damage the grass.
  • Please extinguish cigarettes and throw them in designated cigarette buckets or the garbage, not onto the grass.


ATM's will be available in the beer/wine garden area.


Coming in from out of town and need a place to stay? We recommend the Owyhee Plaza. The Boise Rec Fest room rates are between $77-$87 and it's located less than a mile away from the park. Mention Boise Rec Fest for the discounted rate.
