Idaho Botanical Garden

Thursday, July 24
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Band: Hillfolk Noir

Winery: Cold Springs Winery

Junkerdash!  A sound brewed from folk, bluegrass, punk, and stringband blues—perfectly pairs with drinking and dancing.

From a high-desert vineyard near Hammett, Idaho, a wide variety of wines made from grapes grown in soil rich in volcanic ash and fed by spring water.

Enjoying  live music in the Garden on summer nights has become a local tradition. Great Garden Escape is every Thursday evening, June through September and features upbeat dancing music and friends.

Bring your own low back chairs or blanket.  Picnic baskets are welcome or  guests can purchase  selections from the on-site food and beverage vendors.
