What is OtherWorld Events?
OtherWorld Events is an effort to create a community site that is custom suited to outdoor recreational needs in the Pacific Northwest. With a goal of bringing diverse recreational communities together, OtherWorlds aims to create a multi-facility event site great for both traditional community activities, like camping through the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and for obscure recreation, such as the SCA or Belegarth.
How will OtherWorlds work?
OtherWorld events is split into three parts: Daily recreational facilities, traditional camping, and event hosting for large private groups. Our day-use facilities will be open to the public as well as available for reservation. Our campground will include tent camping, modern restrooms, and yurts.
Our event facilities exclusive to OtherWorld Events, such as the amphitheater or castle, can be used as a day-use rental or in conjunction with an event.
We will also offer a membership plan so you can get discounted rates on every aspect of OtherWorld Events.
For more on Memberships see our Membership page at our website.

OtherWorld Events has chosen the Boise area to establish this facility. Boise is vibrant, ideally located in the PNW, has many surrounding properties for sale and development, and has an airport, which is a crucial point for OtherWorlds. Many of our supporters and staff live, or have lived, in Boise and the community and people are another reason why OtherWorlds is looking here.
Boise already has a love for outdoor recreation and as the area grows we have seen more and more new events, such as the Treefort Music fest, that encourage out-of-staters to explore Idaho in new ways. We want to be a part of this growth. OtherWorlds would like to see more outdoor tourism and commerce feed into Boise.
Even if you don't live in the PNW, contributing helps encourage the growth of facilities like this elsewhere. And to help your community or group in this area to continue to grow.
Because it allows us to run a continuous campaign to accomplish our fundraising plan. Which makes it easier for some of our supporters.
When we successfully reach our goal, we'll have accomplished something I believe no one else has done before. A community-funded, community-built event property.
About This Fundraiser:
Our goal for this campaign is to raise roughly 1/3 of the total amount needed to buy the property, which means we are aiming for $75,000. With an end budget of $200,000 we could buy the right site and have the first stage of development completed within a year of that purchase.
We will be releasing a video later on that will go more into detail the inner workings of OtherWorld Events and our plan's.
Why $75,000 now?
With $75,000 we can continue our effort to Build OtherWorlds. 90% of the money raised will be secured and placed towards the purchase of the future property. The remainder will pay for the research and legal work to find potential sites and connect with more recreation communities.
Why is $200,000 the Final Goal?
We are lucky enough to have committed volunteers available for the first stage of development labor, which has helped immensely in keeping our cost lower, so the vast majority of the $200,000 is for the property. We are looking for a property within an hour of the Boise Airport, with water, shade, and the proper zoning. This amount also covers our partnership with CSHQA for planning and landscaping, 1 year of taxes, utilities, and the development budget for stage 1 facilities.
Campaign Stretch Goals
GoFundMe campaigns have not only a main goal for fundraisers, but stretch goals as well. Our stretch goals are:
- $100,000 "“ Increase the rate at which are researching potential properties. For every site we find there are fees for the zoning and regulation research needed to see if the site is truly viable.
- $150,000 "“ With $150,000 we could continue research and start the buying process.
- $200,000 (Final Fundraising Goal) "“ With our final goal of $200,000 we could research and purchase the right site, and fully design the property with CSHQA and begin landscaping areas on the property
- $250,000 "“ With $250,000 we could build our stage 1 and 2 facilities faster. Things like Cabins, Yurts, a stage, etc.
- $300,000 "“ With $300,000 we could purchase and develop a property even larger than 50 acres and have a facility better suited for long term growth
- $450,000 "“ With $450,000 we could purchase a larger property and develop faster than ever!
