July is all about summer fun, and while there are many events out there that are diverse, there are many musical activities to get excited about this month. However, before we delve into the rock and roll and contemporary concerts we have to look forward to, let’s take a second to check out . . .
855 S. Impressions Ct. Nampa, ID
Nampa Idaho is home to many great things, and one of them is its large variety of community activities there are. The Craft Corner is kind of like a fair for arts and crafts. Many people from around the area will being their wares together to sell, trade, and market their crafts and craft services. It is great for the crafty person in all of us.

Taco Bell Arena
Doors open at 6:30 for this amazing show. Like we said earlier, July is the month for music, and the band KISS will kick it all off on July 7th. This concert will be one to remember as Gene Simons, Paul Stanley, and the rest of the KISS band rock Boise to its core.
Tickets for this great show range from around $40 to $125 each depending on your seat. But you better order them now before they are all gone. This is a long expected event that is going to draw many spectators.
July 8th to July 23
4802 Emerald St. Boise
If you like the stage, then you will love the Stage Coach Theater. It is a great way to enjoy good quality entertainment right here in the heart of Boise. This thrilling play will be put on by the Stage Coach Theater several times this month on different days. So, be sure to check out their website for more information on the exact days that it will be performed.
Outlaw Field— Idaho Botanical Gardens
Next on our list of great musical performances is the great Phillip Phillips. The American Idol winner will be performing at the Idaho Botanical Gardens amongst the Garden’s fabulous vegetation. It will be a night to remember as both Phillip Phillips and Matt Nathanson perform some of their greatest hits here in the City of Trees.
Tickets for this show are different depending on if you are a Botanical Gardens Member or not. Member’s tickets cost $37.50 and the general admission tickets are $42.50.
Ford Idaho Center
Also on the 14th of July, Meghan Trainor will be performing on stage at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa. So, if you are “all about that bass”, then you are going to love this opportunity. Meghan Trainor’s “The Untouchable Tour” will be stopping here between concerts in places like Rosemont, Illinois; Seattle, Washington; and San Jose, California.
This will be a great concert for all music fans, and tickets are priced very affordably as well. The Idaho Center tickets range from $30 to $50 (plus ticketing fees) and doors open at 6:00 PM that Thursday. But be sure to buy your tickets now, the price will increase $5 for each ticket on the day of the performance.
July 14th is a great day for events in the Treasure Valley, so, no matter what you want to do, you are going to find something you like. This event, unlike the Meghan Trainor and Phillip Phillips’ concerts, is free to the public.
The Boise Depot is a historical building that served as the train station for the area for a good long while. It has been closed and preserved as a community heirloom of sorts for many years now and is a great way to take a walk through history. Usually, the Depot is only open for visits on Mondays from 8-5 and you can’t get guided tours (to our knowledge)
During the summers here in the Treasure Valley, there are these amazing community events called Movies Under the Stars where the city puts on a free movie screening at a park in either Boise or Meridian. They are great events that start with games at 7:00 PM that last until sundown when they start the movie. On July 30th they will be watching the movie Pan. (There will also be a showing of the movie Minions on the 9th of July at Julia Davis Park)
