Things you should know!

It's a public event, can I bring my kids?

No kids are allowed! Not even babies. Here in Idaho, we take liquor laws very seriously and nobody under 21 will be given entry, so please be prepared to show your i.d.

Let's be honest, this is your chance for a date night out without the kiddos. Get a babysitter and enjoy a fun time in our great state of Idaho!

Where should I park?

The hotel has plenty of parking available for our event guests. Feel free to park in the front -or- back of the hotel.

Please drink responsibly! Ride-sharing and taxis are widely available in town. If you are questioning whether or not you should drive, make the wiser decision and get a cab.

The hotel is also offering our event guests a special block of rooms at a discounted price, so get a room at the hotel and enjoy our Sip + Stay package!

What if my schedule changes, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, no refunds are available. The tickets are transferable, though. So if for some reason you've purchased a ticket and can't make it, tickets also make great birthday gifts!

What About the Doggos?

Sip Idaho is held exclusively indoors this year, to keep you out of the heat, and the venue does not allow our furry friends at the event. As much as we love them, please leave them at home.

Will there be food available?

Appetizers will be available inside the event venue and are included in your ticket cost. The hotel is catering the event to help us all stay in tip-top shape throughout the evening.

Can I stay at the hotel after the event?

Yes! Sip + Stay! The hotel is blocking off a series of discounted rooms for our guests and vendors if you wish to stay the night. So have a great time, make a date night out of it, and enjoy a nice brunch in the morning. You can book directly with the Courtyard Marriott here: Click Here to Reserve Your Room

Is the ticket for one person only?

Yes. Tickets are per person only. So, as much as you refer to your partner as your "other half" you are two complete humans according to us. You get to buy two complete tickets.
