Events and Attractions in Boulder, Colorado
There's always something happening in Boulder. Events on Pearl Street, live music at the Boulder Theater, the Colorado Chautauqua programs ... the wide variety of things to do assures something for everyone.
Do you know when to start training for the Bolder Boulder 10K? You also don't want to miss the annual Boulder Creek Festival. And you may or may not want to avoid the traditional Naked Pumpkin Run.
Stay tuned to Your Boulder's events and attractions section for the latest and greatest happening in Boulder, Colorado.
It’s possible you’ve been under a rock. If that’s your excuse, that’s cool. But if you haven’t been under a rock and you haven’t heard about Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor’s book Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur, we want to hear your excuse.
Actually, we don’t. Because on Friday, March 29, you won’t have an excuse anymore. Brad and Amy are going to be at Boulder Book Store on Pearl Street.
*** Late breaking – we just heard that due to the unbelievable snowfall along the Front Range, Demetri’s event at Boulder Book Store today is canceled. He’ll be doing 2 shows down in Denver tonight at Comedy Works. There are tickets still left for the 8:30PM show. Buy them here.***
If you’re looking to add some fun to your Sunday, why not head over to Boulder Books on Pearl Street this weekend and catch some Demitri Martin?
His new book, Point Your Face at This, is a collection of drawings and the accompanying presentation is sure to be on-par with his hilarious stand-up antics.
Need to get out of the house this weekend? We do, too.
That’s why we put together a list of what’s shakin’ here in Boulder so you can get out (and maybe run into us) and do something. Yeah, it requires we climb out of our best sweats and that Bon Jovi tee from the 80s, but hey — we’ve got a new Pope and our state legislature just redefined sex. What’s not to celebrate?
And, it’s also St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday. Here’s hoping you don’t feel like a dog on Monday — and if you do, we hope you feel like this fella to the left.
Maybe sidling up to a bar to throw back beers and cocktails isn’t your speed.
You’re more of the tea-and-kombucha tribe. A yoga devotee. Someone devoted to a lifestyle of conscious living.
Boulder’s a national epicenter for conscious living events, so you’re going to feel quite at home here!
The Boulder and Front Range areas are ripe with numerous conscious living lifestyle events. The goal isn’t to run out and get hammered. The goal is for people of similar mindsets to connect on their terms and in environments that feed their passions. From singing bowl parties to drum circles and all-night yoga-a-thons, enthusiasts for this lifestyle always have a fresh event ready and waiting.
In the south of Boulder, you’ll find rolling lawns filled with gorgeous trees. If you wander a bit to the west of parking, you’ll be hiking up the Flatirons and enjoying some of the most iconic views in Boulder County.
But nestled into this space of green grass and Flatiron views are two of Boulder’s most celebrated destinations for live music: Chautauqua Auditorium and the Community House.
Chautauqua Auditorium was erected on July 4 of 1898 and since has hosted some of the region’s most celebrated performances. Artists like Joan Armatrading, Lyle Lovett, The Indigo Girls, and Joan Baez have all graced its stage.
Every other Tuesday, professionals from across the Boulder and Denver tech communities pour into Atlas Purveyors on Pearl Street beginning around 7:30AM. By 7:45AM, you’re lucky if you find a place to sit — it’s usually standing-room-only by this time.
At 8AM sharp, Boulder Open Coffee Club begins. News is discussed, business partnerships are born, jobs are announced, and those seeking jobs make their presence known.
Boulder Open Coffee Club was founded as a bi-weekly gathering point for Boulder’s tech community. Over time, the group has grown into more than just the software developers and their fellow tech enthusiasts, however.
Throughout Boulder, there’s no shortage of places to catch a live music show. From local coffee ships after sundown to larger venues, The Boulder Theater offers some of the area’s richest performing history in all of Boulder County.
The Boulder Theater opened in 1906, originally as an opera house. Today, residents across the Front Range can enjoy a wide variety of performances inside its beautiful walls.
Artists like Martin Sexton, The Punch Brothers, and the Avett Brothers have all graced its modern day stage. It’s also a popular venue for community events like the always sold-out Ignite Boulder, an evening event filled with five-minute presentations from members of the community.
Living in Boulder, you’ll want to keep an eye on all of the live music events that tour through town. For that, The Fox Theatre is a must-add to your list.
Situated over by the University of Colorado – Boulder campus on The Hill, The Fox Theatre hosts a wide range of performances throughout the year. Most shows are general admission (read: no seating, standing room only), so be sure to wear your comfortable shoes as you’ll be on your feet for awhile!
All Ages Shows
Since The Fox is located so close to the CU campus, it frequently hosts all-ages shows to accommodate the student population in Boulder. If you’re ever curious about whether a show you’re interested in is all ages, just pop over to the home page and the current upcoming show along with the future calendar will be posted, including whether the show is 21+ or all ages.
Where do you go when you need inspiration? Events in Boulder range from outdoor sports and live music to others that will have your mind churning with new ideas.
TEDxBoulder began in 2012 and is now the world’s largest independently organized TED event. It’s even bigger attendance-wise that the annual TED conference itself. If you’re looking for an evening to spark inspiration and open your mind to new ideas, you could do worse (can you say Honey Boo Boo worse?) than grabbing a ticket to the annual TEDxBoulder.
