Awards Banquet

Sorry, tickets are no longer available.
Although we doubled the size of the banquet this year, we sold out even faster than last year… 73 minutes!

Are You a Finalist?

If you’re reading this page, then your company is probably a finalist for the Idaho’s Best™ of 2020 Awards.


Since we expanded from the Best of Treasure Valley to all of Idaho this year, it’s even more difficult to make it this far. You should be proud of yourself and your company. We are!

Won’t You Celebrate With Us?

Zions Bank Building

In your honor we are hosting the Idaho’s Best™ of 2020 Awards Banquet on the Penthouse level of the Zion’s Bank Building in downtown Boise.

If you made it last year, you already know… We don’t hold anything back! Each ticket you purchase includes:

  • Live, Clean Comedy Entertainment
  • Delicious Steak or Chicken Dinner
  • Tasty Dessert
  • Beer and Wine Drink Ticket
  • Red Carpet Photo
  • Door Prizes (travel, entertainment, etc.)
  • Winner Recognition and Award Presentation
  • On-Stage Photo Op when Receiving Award
  • Swag Bag of Goodies
  • And More!

Two Nights of Celebration

To accommodate more finalists, we’re holding the banquet across two nights. This way we avoid jamming everything into one ultra-long night of announcing winner after winner after winner.

So, half the categories will be announced on Tuesday 12/3, and the rest on Wednesday 12/4. To see which night your category will be announced, click here.
