Our Story

Bobbi Anderson

Founder / Owner

I have lived in Idaho for over 20 years and been blessed to work with many talented Idaho artists, non-profits, and businesses during that time. I support local....I truly believe the people of Idaho are just as beautiful as its scenery.

In 2008 I joined Boise State University to achieve the college education I promised my Dad I would get someday. That experience led to degrees in English Literature, Communications, Theatre and Non-Profit Management. During this time I raised four fantastic kids, volunteered with many Idaho Non-Profits and created the Kuna Kids Ranger Program. I also became a pretty good bartender. ;)

One day I had this crazy idea that I could create a local country music festival.  After many 100 MPH speeches, a great deal of help from friends,  and jumping in with my eyes closed...here we are today. Not only do we have an AMAZING Country Music Festival in Kuna, Idaho, but we also have an outdoor tavern. Whew!

I love Idaho! Homegrown Events, LLC is my chance to make a crazy dream come true!

Bre Tipton

Beverage and Spirits Director

Hello! My name is Bre and I was born and raised in Idaho. Of course, being a full-blooded Idahoan I enjoy everything outdoors! Hunting, fishing, hiking, and everything else that takes me into the trees.

I've been bartending for many years and was trained by the incredible Bobbi Anderson! I love line/swing dancing in my free time and I'm always looking to learn something new! 

Bobbi asked me to partner with HomeGrown Events on the HomeGrown Outdoor Tavern, and I jumped on board. We are having so much fun, I joined in to help out at the festival.  It is my privilege to represent Idaho beverages and spirits while supporting local artists. 

PLUS.....I can have my own Mobile Bar at my wedding next year! Score!




Nothing beats fishing in Idaho!

MacKenzie Burwell

Graphic Designer / Photographer

I have been a photographer for over 10 years. I started in high school and it has blossomed into my passion. Since 2011, I have worked with Hill Photography in Kuna. Photography is an ever-evolving profession and I have learned a lot working with the amazing photographers at Hill. During this time I have expanded upon my own passion for photography and graphic design.

I have taken Bobbi's family photos for years and was honored she asked me to be a part of the HomeGrown Country Music Festival. Not only is it fun, but I get to be creative in designing the logos, and posters, every year not to mention how fun it is to photograph the festival itself!

In what little free time I get :) I get to enjoy all my nieces and nephews, fish, hunt and take random road trips.  I am born and raised in Idaho so exploring and adventuring are in my blood. I'm excited to be a part of this growing team!
