    Tulips on Pearl Street

    Easter Weekend and Passover in Boulder

    Looking for a cheery spring getaway over Easter weekend or Passover? In Boulder, Spring flowers will likely be lifting their heads for their first drink of fresh spring air — all along hiking trails and Pearl Street flower beds. The Flatirons will start to show the first hints of spring green. And the town will be vibrant with events (including some delicious Boulder Easter brunch and Passover Seder events). See below for a few of the highlights.

    Check back in spring 2020 for updated information.

    Tulip Time on Pearl Street

    Downtown Boulder’s brick-paved Pearl Street Mall is filled with flowerbeds that bloom with upwards of 15,000 tulips in springtime. The timing of the buds’ opening is, of course, up to Mother Nature, but you will often see the tulips begin to pop up in early April, with peak time often happening mid to late April. Bring a camera and make a day of it with Pearl Street’s amazing shopping and dining.

    Named the No. 1 Farmers’ Market in the country by readers of USA Today, the Boulder Farmers’ Market is a fun place to start a Saturday. Established in 1986 by a handful of local farmers looking to sell farm-fresh produce directly to the public, the market is now the largest in Colorado. It is a growers-only market, and shoppers can enjoy seasonal produce, eggs, cheeses, meats, herbs, flowers, wines and gourmet food products. Plus, the market enjoys a lovely setting next to shady Central Park and the Boulder Creek, at the doorsteps of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) and the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse
