BOISE, Idaho — Another casualty of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Alive After Five and the Father's Day Car Show are canceled for 2021. The Downtown Boise Association made the announcement Friday, saying the decision was made out of an abundance of caution and responsibility to the public.
“As disappointing as it is to postpone Alive After Five, Downtown Boise Association is choosing to do that to prioritize the health and safety of our downtown,” said Jennifer Hensley, Executive Director of Downtown Boise Association (DBA). “That includes the visitors, artists, fans, employees, volunteers, and partners that all make this concert series happen. We know that it is in the best interest of the community to do what we can to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to truly celebrating the 35th season of this beloved summer event in a grand manner in 2022.”
The Alive After Five Summer Concert Series brought thousands of people to the Grove Plaza for years but was canceled in 2020 and this year due to the pandemic. The events should be back next summer.
For now, you should expect smaller events to be announced that will allow the public to safely connect outdoors.
