According to our Treefort organizers, since the launch of Radio Boise KRBX 89.9 FM in 2011, emerging artists are getting more airplay all over this large population center for the first time in decades, if not ever. Many of the Treefort family were already active in the Radio Boise family as volunteers, fans and supporters and completely acknowledge the station’s role in the increased synergy here in Boise, not only in the music scene, but in the arts and culture scene at large.
“We see Treefort as a celebration what makes Boise great – whether it’s Boise’s local breweries, homegrown food, skatepark, lively downtown core or simply its strong spirit of collaboration and love of the outdoors. Boise has something for everyone, no matter their age, and we hope that Treefort is an example of that.”
In 2015, Treefort was named the City of Boise’s Cultural Ambassador for being an event that genuinely reflects the energy across mediums that is happening in the Boise community and cultural scene, and for the vision of connecting Boise and its creatives with other communities around the region, the country and around the world. The Cultural Ambassador title runs through 2017
Treefort is a “for profit entity ran like a non-profit” because it has always been a “values-based project” driven by a purpose much more than the lure of profit. In the summer of 2014 a new legal that could best represent who Treefort is as a festival, as community members and as a business, the Treefort Leadership Team officially formed Treefort, LLC and began seeking B-Corp certification to lock in and protect the legacy principles the festival was founded upon. Treefort became a certified B-Corp in 2015.
