DISCOVER // Boise Green Fest

For what could be considered a small city, Boise has usually got enough events going on that I never feel like I don't have anything to do around here. When I heard about the Green Fest that was going on one weekend, I decided to walk over and check it out. They had shut down two blocks downtown just to host this event, and I'm glad I made it over for a few hours!

The Idaho Green Fest celebrates sustainability with music in the heart of downtown Boise. Performers, musicians, businesses, and food vendors gathered together and celebrated the conservationist cause.
I visited booths and stands that featured homemade treats, delectable chocolates (of which there was featured a Huckleberry Chocolate bar!), and fresh pizza that used locally grown and organic ingredients! It was a real treat, believe me.
There was an adorable food bus called The B Town Bistro where I got a margherita pizza, and it was the best pizza I've had in a long time. I'll definitely be stalking this food bus to figure out where I can next try some more of their fresh, organic-infused dishes!
While I wasn't too impressed by the musical acts that were performing while I walked around, I could still appreciate having live music present. I really liked the stage set up in Freak Alley, an iconic spot downtown that features amazing graffiti. The stage featured a silks section (as in the sort that aerial artists perform on). It was definitely a cool addition to the set! There were also artist booths set up where I spotted some fantastic metal casting pieces that were made with 100% recycled aluminum. 
So to end this post, here's a sneak peek at the outfit I wore for the day (I'll have an outfit post up featuring this look)! I hope you enjoyed this little post at one of the events hosted in Boise, and hopefully I'll be able to bring you more coverage like this in the future. Of course, I plan on being more prepared for taking high quality photos...these were all taken with my dying iPhone 5s, so sorry if they're not quite up to par with the usual posts. However, I couldn't resist sharing this event!

I have never tried pizza which is made of organic ingredients only, but sounds really great:) Besides, those snapshots are so lovely, I didn't even noticed that they are taken with your iPhone, until you didn't say that:)!
Have a fabulous time, Linda!

There is definitely a push for more naturally locally grown food, it's great! We have the same kind of things here in Brisbane.

Glad you had fun at the event - and the pics aren't too bad at all, don't be so harsh on yourself :) Camera phones are good for quick snaps like this now and then :)

I love that you're exploring what's around you! Most definitely more, because I know nothing about Boise. Glad you had a good time. Great outfit.

Huzzah for 100% recycled pieces! It sounds like you went to such a rad event (despite the apparently poor music, haha) with so much ethically-sourced things! I've never had fully organic pizza but that sounds so amazing. Also, your outfit is great! Posts like this are fun--you should continue! ;)

My dream is a world filled with local businesses, who sell homemade food and freshly picked vegetables from their garden, homemade coffee and sweets, and not that Starbucks shit. I feel sad that bigger companies are taking smaller ones out of business, when the quality of local producers is obviously much better damn it.
This fest sounds so awesome, mmmmmmm, that pizza.....I need a bite *_*
