The inaugural HaggleFest music gear swap and trade fair will be held from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10, at The Venue, 521 W. Broad St., Boise. Admission is $5. Seller registration is $10 and includes free admission. All ages. Proceeds will benefit Radio Boise, Boise Rock School and Think Boise First.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade an instrument, score a sweet deal on a gift for a budding musician or make some extra cash for Christmas, HaggleFest is where it’s at. Buy, sell or trade used instruments and music gear at the Treasure Valley’s first swap meet and trade fair specifically for musicians (and aspiring musicians) of all ages and abilities.
But HaggleFest is much more than that. It’s about building our musical community and recognizing people who rock. In addition to the swap, there will be free music lessons, music/gear advice from experts, equipment repairs and diagnostics, and a chance to network with other music makers and shakers in our vibrant scene. Musicians and businesses are encouraged to bring promotional stickers for the HaggleFest Guest Wall.
