More Info on King Tut


Tutankhamun was an 18th dynasty pharaoh who inherited the throne at a young age. His reign was short-lived and inconsequential in comparison to other great pharaoh's of Egypt. Upon his death, his legacy quickly faded into the sands of Egypt. Once forgotten by his nation, King Tut is now one of Egypt’s most well-known icons because of his beautiful and complete burial tomb. He continues to hold the world’s fascination and yet puzzles leading Egyptology historians. Many stories surround the pharaoh, including a legend about a curse.

Come take an in-depth look at King Tut and explore his life, treasure, curse, and discovery. Take a tour that will feel like a deep venture into King Tut’s tomb with discoverer Howard Carter on November 22, 1922.


Are you planning to visit the King Tut Exhibit?

If so, please share with us what you are looking forward to seeing!

Northern Rockies Folk Festival

The family friendly two-day, music festival boasts local food vendors, a raffle, and a huge children’s play ground. With affordable tickets at $35, $25 and $15, you can't afford to miss it!

Background on the Northern Rockies Folk Festival


The festival began as a small community center event in 1977. Today, it has grown into a two-day concert, jam-packed with talent culled from the Wood River Valley, as well as regional and national music scenes. The Northern Rockies Folk Festival also supports young musicians by always making room on the stage for up-and-coming bands with local ties, student musicians, and “tweeners” who are local musicians given 15-minutes during stage set changes.

Why would I want to go to a folk festival?


Held in Hailey, Idaho, the concert site is tucked against the Big Wood River, at the base of Carbonate Ridge. Attendees walk and ride their bikes to the venue. Many bring a picnic meal. Soak up some sun, dance, listen to music, and maybe even take a dip in the Big Wood River during band breaks. The Northern Rockies Folk Festival is exactly what you want a summer concert to be: a place where music lovers can have a great time in a safe and healthy environment.

Idaho International Music Festival


Folk dancers from all around the world gather in the community of Rexburg for the Idaho International Dance & Music Festival. Dancers come from approximately 10 different countries each year and only one team from each country can participate.

The Idaho International Dance & Music Festival is a mixture of ceremony, dance instruction and performance. Many of the international dancers stay with host families for the event. This balance of activity provides time for the locals and the visitors to almost become part of each others families.

The Idaho International Dance & Music Festival is organized by the Rexburg Chamber of Commerce and Brigham Young University. A directing committee with hundreds of volunteers and intern put together this great community event. This year, the event is also being held in Burley, from July 25th -27th.

Events at the Festival


Usually, the festival begins with a parade during which the different dance troupes can show off some of their moves. After the parade each team will perform and interact with the audience. Teams will also have souvenir tables set up. A street festival usually takes place on Main St. as well.

History of the Idaho Dance & Music Festival


Brigham Young university dance directors, who founded the festival, drew their inspiration from a folk dance tour of Europe they completed in 1983. They envisioned a dance event in Rexburg that would attract performers from all over the world. The inaugural festival took place in 1986; since then the diversity of the team rosters has grown. Between 1986 and 2006, 172 teams performed from over 55 countries. In recent years, the nearby town of Burley became a second site of the festival; its version takes place within a week or two of the Rexburg festival.
