Things you should know!

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

No kids 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 downtown Boise!

Where should I park?

Street parking downtown is normally free after 5:00pm on Saturdays! So you can park on the streets or in any of the large parking garages nearby. Park BOI actually has a garage right there at the hotel!

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

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, 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 widely available from the Hilton Garden Inn and are included in your ticket cost. They are 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 and stay! The hotel is actually blocking off a series of rooms for guests and vendors if you wish to stay the night. So have a great time, make a date out of it, and enjoy a nice downtown brunch in the morning. You can book directly with the Hilton here.

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.

Volunteer & Work Opportunities

With so many distillers and vendors coming in for the event, we have a few opportunities for volunteer staff and paid bartenders. For all applicants that would like to help pour, the City of Boise requires that you are a certified bartender.

If you would like to inquire about opportunities, please send us a message below!
