Curb Cup 2009

Have you heard about the Curb Cup? It's coming up this weekend (SUNDAY - 2pm to 4pm) and it's being called Boise's great "street circus of creativity"... a perfom-a-palooza of fun and entertainment!


Here in the Treasure Valley, we have a huge arts and entertainment community.

130 acts are confirmed right now!

One thing to keep in mind, the Curb Cup is interactive - you get to vote for your favorite performers and, they have the opportunity to win super prizes. So, bring your family and friends - and get ready to see everything from musicians, tap dancers, break dancers, jump-ropers, hula-hoopers, comedians, visual artists and cyclists etc.

Local developer Mark Rivers is behind this urban shindig - and here's what he had to say about it:

"I've seen many great global cities bust out during the summer with inspired events and entertainment, spilling onto their streets. Here in Boise, we have a huge creative community and, I wanted to find a way for us to celebrate that uniqueness and diversity. This was a way to drive creative spirit and activate our downtown at the same time." - Mark Rivers, Curb Cup Founder
