    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

    Hiker Shuttles Start Back Up! You don't need a car to get to Chautauqua on summer weekends — or to Eldorado Canyon State Park or the Hessie Trailhead. Check out these free (and almost free) shuttles that start running Memorial Day weekend 2021.

    Boulder Farmers Market

    May 29, 2021, 8am–2pm
    Named one of the 10 Best Farmers Markets in the U.S. by 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.

The women of Ley Line transcend language and genres to create a sound that seems to emerge from deep within the earth. Dynamic harmonies run like a current through textures of stand-up bass, guitar, ukulele and percussion.
