Important notice:

If you haven't bought tickets yet, they'll be available at the door, but you might not get food because we had to relay a head count to our caterer by Oct. 21. We removed advance ticket sales from this website, but please still come. Tickets are $25 for non-members and $20 for members.

Further details:

The IRU Auction for the Rivers is an annual tradition in the Treasure Valley. Come bid on cool stuff while supporting the rivers you love.

This year, the auction is at the the Barber Park Education & Events Center right along the Boise River. We've also moved the event up a full month to take advantage of Boise's beautiful fall weather. Our evening will begin at 4 p.m. with a wine tasting and gallery stroll highlighting our photo contest winners.  The silent and not-so-silent auction portions will begin at 5 p.m.  And there'll be a fabulous dessert auction to conclude the evening.

This year's event is catered by one of our top sponsors, Open Table Catering, and we'll have music by Thomas Paul
