Stretching across the valley are magnificent miles of verdant trees, abundant farmland, plentiful pastures and exquisite fruit orchards. Framing the valley are mountains and hills on three sides including the majestic beauty of Squaw Butte. Emmett is a step back in time to a simpler country lifestyle, yet only a 30 minute drive to Downtown Boise and all the conveniences and culture to be found in a big city. Emmett’s many local events and activities include the oldest continuously running festival in Idaho, the Emmett Cherry Festival, which is held annually in June in the Emmett City Park.
