The Idaho Shakespeare Festival was a major recipient of Idaho Commission on the Arts grant funds in 2018.

Each year, the Idaho Commission on the Arts disburses hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to small groups and high-profile organizations across the state. This year, the commission announced on July 2 that grants totaling nearly $545,000 will be awarded to 71 arts groups across the Gem State, and as in years past, Boise's arts scene was a major recipient, receiving almost 40 percent of all grant money.
