Boise State at Treefort

Boise State’s deep-rooted history with Treefort begins at the festival’s inception in 2012. Now, not only does Boise State sponsor Treefort at the highest level, but we also highlight the work of many Boise State students, alums and employees that shine rays of talent and creativity through the City of Trees each March.
