The Birds Are Not the Only Ones Singing In Idaho This Summer

Idaho Summer Music Festivals

Spring has sprung in Idaho and that means the birds are back from their winter migrations. You can hear them singing early in the morning and many are finding a place to nest. The birds aren't the only things that are singing once the days start to get longer and the sunshine warms up this beautiful state of Idaho. Residents and visitors alike can travel the state to experience music festivals of all kinds! 

Here are a few that may interest you: 

The Summer Music Festival at Roseberry

The Summer Music Festival is presented the third full weekend of July. (July 16th, 17th, and 18th 2015)

Concerts have been held on the lawn and outdoor stage on the south side of the Roseberry Store; however, in 2009, the festival took place on our new permanent stage located a few yards southeast of the Roseberry General Store. This has been an amazing venue for the festival!

Idaho Music and Wildflower Festival

Pebble Creek’s annual Wildflower Concert will be held from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Saturday June 27. Concert goers can nestle their lawn chairs and blankets in the wild flowers on the slopes. The hillside just above the deck provides a perfect view of both the performers and the sunset. A wild flower hike before the concert is a great way to start the evening.
