The Event Grant Program and Our Mission

The mission of the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is to provide leadership promoting Boulder’s natural environment, arts, culture, innovation and the visitor experience to support economic vitality and our quality of life. The BCVB Event Grant Program (EGP) has been designed and implemented to support the Boulder Sustainable Tourism Plan, which identifies economic, experiential, quality of life and infrastructure goals for the community. The EGP helps achieve these goals by investing in the development of new events, as well as the expansion of existing events, that identify with the Boulder brand for both residents and visitors with the specific goal of increasing tourism and revenue in mind. 

Create Boulder is a nonprofit that raises funds for artists and arts and culture organizations in Boulder, Colorado.  Their mission is to advocate for the arts, ignite investment in the arts and increase participation in the City of Boulder’s creative culture. To learn more, please visit
