It's Pride Weekend in the Treasure Valley and you can feel the energy in the air. Each year--with the exception of COVID-laden 2020 of course--Boise Pride Festival brings a sense of community, welcoming, and openness.

In order to attend Boise Pride Festival this year, you're going to have to prove negative COVID-19 test results OR show that you are indeed vaccinated. This is a trend that we are seeing all over the nation and even with other events right here in the Treasure Valley, especially concerts.

So with a lot of people wondering how this is going to work--here's everything you need to know.

First, there's a Boise Pride Health Pledge that all attendees are asked to comply with:

You are asked NOT to attend if any of the following apply to you:

  • Within 14 days before attending the festival you have tested positive or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Within 48 hours prior to attending the festival, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Within 14 days prior to attending the festival you have traveled to any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19.

If you ARE vaccinated, it's super simple to get your bright green wristband for easy festival access. Just to the left of the entrance gates, you will see the Health Check Tent. Once they verify that your ID and vaccination card match up, you're good!

Looking to go the "Negative Test Route"? There is actually going to be on-site, FREE testing! Drop by the Pala Diagnostics set up for yours at the following times:

  • September 10th: 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
  • September 11th: 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
  • September 12th: 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
