Boulder Arts Week
April 7-15, 2023
Get ready. Boulder Arts Week is back for another year of festivities at the beginning of April, with digital and in-person arts and culture offerings, including art walks, exhibitions, performances, dance, music, theater, public art, lectures, readings and workshops at venues throughout the city. Boulder has the nation's third-highest concentration of artists, and Boulder Arts Week, now in its ninth year, is your chance to see many of its artists in action during nine days packed with arts events.
For arts lovers, the week-long series of events means a smorgasbord of cultural experiences, from murals and installations to art walks and events both online and in person featuring a huge variety of disciplines — including dance, music, theater, visual arts and more.
