About the event


Please note: This is a 21+ event. Valid ID required for entry.

Tickets may be purchased as single-day passes and two-day passes.

Idaho Botanical Garden members, get $5 off your ticket! Check your email for instructions.


  • Your own cup! We know you have a steel pint glass, cup from other beer fests, or even an old coffee mug you can grab. We don’t care what kind of cup (except please no glass) – just bring one!
  • A water bottle! It’s important to stay hydrated. We will have water stations around the ‘fest so you can refill. Please bring your water bottle empty and fill it at the water station when you arrive.
  • A ‘70s outfit! We are keeping things groovy in honor of the first Earth Day which took place on April 22, 1970. Dress up in your finest ‘70s attire and get ready to get funky.
  • An alternative transportation plan! Ride your bike, walk, run, scooter, or ride a bus to Shade City and raise a glass to reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Respect for The Garden! Please do not walk in any garden beds or plant areas in the Garden. There are sleeping plants that we don't want to trample. Stay on the paths.


  • A chair. We will have seating available or you can find a nice grassy spot to rest. There is limited space in the Garden, so plan on sharing some elbow room with your neighbors!
  • Children or dogs. We love your kiddos and your pups, but this particular party is for humans over 21 years old (this applies to infants as well). Only service animals are allowed.
  • A cooler or outside food or drinks. We are going to have tons of beverages for you to enjoy! Beer, cider, NA beverages, and a variety of food will be available for purchase, so no need to bring any with you.
  • Weapons of any kind. There are no weapons permitted in the Idaho Botanical Garden. Leave them at home!


Our goal is to employ zero and low-waste tactics at every turn for Shade City. Here are some of the ways we are reducing waste:

  • Patrons will bring their own cups! We are not having cups made for this event. There will be used/donated cups available to purchase should someone forget a cup.
  • Food vendors will use reusable flatware and plates.
  • There will be a dishwashing station for cleaning plates for reuse managed by our friends at Roots Zero Waste Market.
  • Brigade Screenprinting will be on site to print your Shade City merch as you order it to eliminate excess merchandise.
  • Promotional event posters will be printed on the back of old posters or on recycled paper.
  • We will provide as many alternative transportation options as we can including bus routes, bike parking, and more
