The Idaho International Dance and Music Festival announces a name change, a date change and location change!

Join us next year as the Idaho International Summerfest begins.  See our exhilarating show being performed this year at the new Performing Arts Center at Madison High School.

Rexburg, the “Youngest Community in the Nation” (as declared by the 2010 Census), will make that youth come alive this upcoming summer!  After 28 years of hosting the world-famous Idaho International Dance and Music Festival, next year’s event will be a broader and more culturally interactive festival—the Idaho International SummerFest.


Every summer hundreds of performers from around the world descend on Rexburg and nearby Burley.  Dancers and musicians perform in various venues, from the Gala Performances to the Street Parade, Street Festival, youth culture classes and other events.  There’s always dancing and singing in the streets, and new friendships and bonds created that have been known to last for decades.

In the past we have hosted nearly 300 different teams from 60 different countries. All right here in Rexburg, Idaho.  We are truly ambassadors to the world. Last year’s event included teams from:
China – Traditional
Peru – Exciting
India – “Bollywood” – Modern & Exhilarating
Russia – Traditional
New Zealand – Grammy Awards Entertainer – LT Smooth
USA – Footworks

Along with the traditional dance and music from around the world, next year’s Idaho Summerfest will showcase performers of all kinds and types.  Next year’s festival targets youth and young families as well as our traditional audiences.
