Welcome to Star, Idaho. We are a small town located about 20 miles west of Boise. Our community offers a pleasant atmosphere and we are close to many of the recreational opportunities that Idaho has to offer. Star offers a lifestyle that is still within reach, a four seasons climate and a very low crime rate. Because of this, many have found Star to be the community of choice to raise their children. It isn't uncommon in Star to see local children walking down to the river with their fishing poles in hand.
Like much of the Treasure Valley, Star has grown over the last few years. The current population is about 5500 and this recent growth has provided the residents with an increase in services. More businesses have opened, allowing residents the opportunity to shop locally for goods and services.
Our hometown celebration will be held on Saturday, July 9th this year. Among the things to watch for will be the Quilt Show, Pie Contest, games for the kids and the parade. The BBQ will begin at 12:30 pm at Blakehaven Park; you will need to purchase your tickets in advance. The day's events will start at 8:00 am with the Fun Run starting at Blakehaven Park. We have many other events planned for our residents this summer, so check your calendars and come join us.
