Boulder's biggest days are its biggest events, and the best time to experience its distinctive way of life.
Most events in Boulder happen along the Pearl Street Mall
, such as the Pearl Street Music & Arts Festival , Boulder SpringFest
. and Switch on the Holidays
. Other events span various venues around the city such as Open Studios
, which allows visitors to explore artists' studios.
The Conference on World Affairs
and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival
happen every year on the University of Colorado
campus, both of which are some of the best annual events of Boulder.
The Aerial Dance Festival
literally takes dancing to new heights and Frozen Dead Guys in Nederland
is a festival based around a cryogenically-frozen grandfather kept in a shack behind a Nederland resident's house, complete with coffin races and "Frozen Dead Guy" lookalike contests.
