Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean the fun in Boulder has to stop. Sure, summer is filled with outdoor concerts, festivals, and other fun-in-the sun activities. But there is still plenty to do now that the temperatures are starting to drop.
We scoured the interwebz for the most curious of events in Boulder and came up with this curated list to help pique your interests as you gaze at the empty days on your calendar. Ready to explore, fellow Boulderites? Check out the events below. And don’t forget we’ve got an election coming up. Read up on issues and folks and remember — Boulder is better when we ALL participate!
