Boulder Arts Week

March 25-April 2, 2022

Get ready. Boulder Arts Week is back for another year of festivities at the end of March, 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 eighth year, is your chance to see many of its artists in action during nine days packed with arts offerings.

For arts lovers, the week-long series of events means a smorgasbord of performances, art walks, showings and events to attend both online and in person in a huge variety of disciplines — including dance, music, theater, visual arts and more.

Please note: The information below is for 2021. Check back for updated information in early 2022!

A full calendar of events will happen all across Boulder and online. Here we've highlighted some of the in-person events happening in Boulder:

  • AscenDanceBus, a dance-climb fusion performance that will take place outside at Loreland Farm on a rock-climbing wall that's mounted on the side of a bus
  • An art sale pop-up at Rayback Collective, a food truck park with a huge outdoor space
  • A covered, open-air figure drawing marathon at the Spark (or learn all about fine art modeling in the same setting)
  • Self-guided mural walks and bike rides in art-strewn Boulder neighborhoods 
  • Art in the Park, a mapped discovery tour of 15 bear cub sculptures (each personalized by a local artist) scattered throughout Chautauqua Park
  • Stop by the Boulder Public Library and wave your hand in front of a Short Story Dispenser, and it will generate a story just for you. These are all the rage in Europe and now you can try on in Boulder!
