** E-tickets (delivered in a separate e-mail) can be taken straight to the gate to be scanned the night of the event. When purchasing tickets, members receive their discount at the check-out screen once they sign in or register with the online sales program. Member discounts are only valid for online purchases.

Seating is limited in the Meditation Garden. We encourage you to explore our many acres and spread out into the various garden spaces!

Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and non-alcoholic beverages. Lost Grove Brewing is onsite serving delicious beer. Tasty bites and wine are also available all season long!

8/25 Boise Straight Ahead

Boise Straight Ahead was formed in 1997 and has been providing big band jazz to Idaho audiences ever since. They love this uniquely American sound and wish to keep this vibrant music alive by honoring the many great performers and composers that gave us these great songs. The band focuses on playing community events in the Treasure Valley and has donated all their performance fees to local non-profits like United Way, Meals on Wheels, and Boys & Girls Clubs. To date, the band has generated more than $75,000 in donations to these organizations. This all-volunteer ensemble seeks to bring their audiences an enjoyable afternoon of listening to this terrific musical genre. They look forward to entertaining the guests at the Idaho Botanical Garden’s Great Garden Escape again in 2022.
