    Memorial Day Weekend in Boulder

    Spring, glorious spring! It's especially glorious in Boulder, where hundreds of blossoms decorate the flower beds along Pearl Street and it's perfect hiking weather. It's all part of why Boulder was named one of the top 45 Memorial Day destinations in the U.S.

    "Boulder is arguably one of the best weekend getaways in Colorado — if not the whole Western United States!" —TripAdvisor

    Boulder Farmers Market

    Tentatively May 23, 2020, 8am–2pm
    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.
