About the event

Taking note from other cities both nationally and globally, we'll be shutting down N 13th St in Hyde Park between Alturas & Brumback to give it back to the pedestrians for a few hours to provide you with a BLOCK PARTY.

This event is FREE for the Boise community. You do not just have to be a North End resident to join in on the fun. This is not a street fair with commerce and alcohol, but an event to foster community and learn about how all types of residents move through our beautiful city. Some local business will also extend out into the street and to utilize the space in a creative and new way! 

Join us to find out what our Transportation & Mobility partners are doing in the City of Boise, and the North End in particular. Find new and different ways to get around. Learn how to more safely get around. Ask questions, listen, be involved:

  • City of Boise - Pathways and Mobility 
  • ACHD - Bike and Pedestrian Planning
  • ACHD Commuteride - Vanpool, Carshare and BEYOND!
  • Valley Regional Transit - Our local bus 
  • Boise Bicycle Project - a local non profit and advocacy group
  • COMPASS - our regional transportation planning organization 
  • LINC - Southwest Idaho's Center for Independent Living
  • More pending!

Community presentations every hour. Frequent the Hyde Park businesses.

FREE raffle every half hour sponsored by the local businesses in Hyde Park.

What is a 'Parklet'? Come find out, but bring your game and garden face.

Bring your alternative (non-auto) mode of transportation. There will be plenty of bike racks. Plus repair stations.

Try navigating our obstacle course. Or take the wheelchair or blindfold challenge.

Check out VRT's latest zero-emmission bus and see how cushy the Commuteride Van really is. Afraid to try and hoist your bike on the bus? Try it out while it's parked!

Get your helmet test fitted, pick up tons of swag from our partners.
