January Events Around Boise

January

Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2019. Wow!  Can you believe it’s been 19 years since the turn of the century?  So much has changed. We’ve seen great advances in technology, medicine, and even entertainment.  When facing a new year, it feels like a good time to make changes in our lives as well. The Treasure Valley holds plenty of opportunities to make those changes and try something new.  Here is just a small taste of what our community has to offer for the month of January.

Idaho’s 6th Annual Potato Drop

New Year’s Eve, 3pm – 1am:  Idaho State Capital, Downtown Boise

A lot of fun and food is promised at this free, fundraising festival.   New this year is the VIP room with a heated tent, food, drinks, and dancing. Don’t forget to reserve your spot because space is limited.  Make sure to find your way over to the “Tuber-Luge” public tubing hill, and the “Big-Air Rail Jam” snow park for some “Spud-Tacular” fun. Kick off the new year with a bang by watching Boise’s World Class fireworks display.  

Mendelssohn & More Concert

Friday, January 11, 2019:  7:30 pm to 9:00 pm:  Brandt Center, 707 Fern St, Nampa, Idaho,

This whimsical rendition of the classical period composers is sure to tickle your musical bone as well as your funny bone.  Come early so you can attend the pre-concert event at 6:30 pm where you can mix and mingle with members of the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra.  Or stay after for the Post-Concert event immediately following the performance.

Brian Regan

Friday, January 11, 2019:  8:00 pm:  The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, 2201 West Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise, Idaho,

Brian Regan is considered to be the funniest comedian alive.  His Netflix special, Nunchucks And Flamethrowers premiered November 21, 2017, earning him a place with some of the greatest comedians.  Each year Brian’s comedic style consistently draws large audiences to his performances on his annual 100 city, North American tour.  Don’t miss out on this tremendous event sure to make you cry…with laughter.

Family Field Trip Weekend

Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20, 2019:  10:00 am to 4:00 pm:  World Center for Birds of Prey, 5668 W Flying Hawk Ln, Boise, ID,

Trying to entertain the kids on a dime?  Well, look no further, because the Birds of Prey center can do that and even educate the kiddos in the process.  There will be live bird demonstrations, crafts and activities, and the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, and beautiful surroundings of the interpretive trail.  If you miss out on this activity, don’t worry because on February 16th and 17th you’ll have another chance to enjoy a day with the birds.

Yoga with Martha

Tuesday, January 22, 2019:  6:00 pm to 7:00 pm:  Ada Community Library- Lake Hazel, 10489 West Lake Hazel Road, Boise, Idaho

If getting fit is one of your New Year’s resolutions then starting this free Yoga class might just be what you need.  Martha is a certified instructor who can teach you the basics of beginning Yoga. Participants must be 18 years and older.  There’s no need to bring a mat, they will be provided. Just bring a good attitude and a willingness to learn. You will walk away invigorated and relaxed.

Boise Center-Idaho Remodeling and Design Show

Saturday, January 26 thru Sunday, January 27, 2019:  6:00 pm to 11:00 pm :  Boise Centre, 850 W Front St, Boise, Idaho

For only $6 in cash, you can peruse 120 displays of the latest in kitchen, bathroom, and landscaping renovating and decorating.  But, it doesn’t stop there. Spend time attending their many educational seminars to learn the how-tos of renovating and decorating.  Let them help you to become the Joneses that everyone is trying to keep up with.

Computer Basics

Tuesday, January 29, 2019:  6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, Ada Community Library, 10664 West Victory Road, Boise, Idaho

Basic computer skills are a must in our high-tech society.  This class is designed to teach those needing to learn basic computer skills or just need to brush up on ones they once knew.  You will come away from this class with keyboarding skills including using functions and shortcuts.

In January you never know where the new year will lead you.  But, right now, take some time to plot a course and possibly create some bucket list items.  You may be surprised by the exciting directions that course can take you.
