Boulder's Adventure Film Festival was founded by the well-known climber, photographer and storyteller Jonny Copp. As the story goes, he came up with the idea while hunkered down in a tent in the Himalayas during a storm. He envisioned a community outdoor adventure festival that brought together indie film with art and — as importantly — activism.
Here at the foot of the Rockies, surrounded by nature and an abundance of outdoor adventure, this unique film festival has delighted audiences for over a decade. Gritty, profound, shocking, visceral and inspiring are just a few ways to describe the films that screen at the Adventure Film Fest. Screenings of some the year's most inspirational films are shown over two days at the historic Boulder Theater and other local venues. The Kids Show features family-friendly films, live performance from beloved musical duo Jeff and Paige, giveaways and special activities for the wee ones.
In 2018, the street fair is going to be two city blocks long with 40-plus vendors. It's a great place to bring the kids, dance to live music, taste craft beer, explore the Vendor Village, learn backcountry cooking with Kieran Creevy, enter to win prizes and much more.
The Street Fair happens Sat., Oct. 7, 2017 2-7pm and Sun., Oct. 8, 2017, noon-7pm. Live music and beer garden until 10pm.
There are hikes, yoga and mimosas, and more parties to enjoy! Check out the festival program online to read film synopses and plan your festival experience. Admission options range from single tickets to all-day Friday passes to full festival passes. Check it out at the Boulder Theater's website.
