Bloom : A Summer Reading Series
Saturday, August 01st 2020 • 12:00pm - 2:00pm
We’ve partnered with the folks behind Storyfort to bring you a safely-distanced reading series this June through August. This story series reflects an array of themes from fiction writers, poets, creative nonfiction writers, and even a writer who is penning a “folk rock opera” (which should be awesome!) at the Idaho Botanical Garden on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons.
The series will take place in our Meditation Garden and the shady, expansive green area that surrounds it. Bring your own low-back chairs or blanket.
Bring your own low-back chairs or blanket. At this time, we will not have vendors at this event. Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and beverages.
Please help us keep the garden clean by packing in and packing out your picnic!
Attendance will limited to these events, which will very easily allow artists and attendees 6′ – 10′ between themselves and others. Please be mindful of other guests and practice social-distancing at all times. Face masks will not be required but are encouraged for your safety and the safety of others. All PA and event equipment will be sanitized regularly.

About CCC Fund
The collaborative effort of the COVID Cultural Commissioning (CCC) Fund, a partnership organized by Treefort Music Fest, the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, and the Boise City Department of Arts & History, was initiated April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact socially and economically to the creative sector of the Treasure Valley. Local cultural leaders came together to outline a mission and goals for funding creative projects and solicited funds from both major organizations and private individual donors.
Support the Artists
We will be accepting cash donations at the events to support the local artist, Storyfort, and the Idaho Botanical Garden.
