Bored? Don’t blame us! Let these businesses help cure your boredom. Welcome to the Treasure Valley’s #1 Entertainment Guide for Family Fun in Boise!
brush’d offers a fun evening to channel your inner artist with guided instruction through specific pieces of art created on a canvas with acrylic paint.
You can even enjoy a beverage of your choice while doing so if you’d like! So… why brush’d? The main vision of brush’d is to create a fun atmosphere where people can socialize and create a beautiful piece of art they may have never thought they could create, all while supporting other LOCAL businesses!
Supplies are purchased from local companies, brush’d will also be donating a portion of all ticket sales annually to a local charity or school, and one of our favorite aspects, your instructor will always be a student currently attending an Idaho college or university with an Art Major.

Fly Boise is a center for aerial arts instruction and performance. Center stage at Fly Boise houses a flying trapeze rig. Participants of nearly all ages and abilities will safely climb the ladder to the pedestal and be guided by 3 flying trapeze professionals to accomplish a trick which matches the flyer’s ability level, culminating in transfer to a catcher on a separate trapeze and a gentle landing in the safety net. Beginning classes require no special skills; serious flyers may accept the challenge of ever-increasing levels of difficulty.
