The Treasure Valley is packed full of fun community events to attend with the whole family.
God and Country Festival
The God and Country Festival is an annual tradition in the Treasure Valley that includes a free Christian concert. It is an event attended by many civic leaders, and is designed to celebrate our American freedom. The event takes place the Wednesday before the 4th of July.
The Festival began during a movement organized by western actor Chuck Connors during the sixties to promote our country's founding ideals and faith in God. Nampa held its first rally back in 1967. When the event moved to the Idaho Center in 2000, the name was changed from "God and Country Rally" to "God and Country Festival."
