Free This Weekend? Head To The Boulder Creek Festival!
Every year, over 500,000 people congregate in Boulder for the much anticipated unofficial start of the summer, the Boulder Creek Festival. The festival, which runs for three days and includes nine separate event areas with over 500 vendors, is often considered one of Boulder County’s favorite and most anticipated events. The Festival showcases a wide range of art and entertainment as well as innovations in lifestyle and technology. On top of it all, the festival includes carnival rides, food vendors and drink vendors. Admission to the festival is free, and what struggling college kid doesn’t like the word “free”? The festival is the perfect for CU kids sticking out their Maymester classes, or the students who chose to call Boulder their home year-round. For many CU students, it’s important to get away from the stress of school, internships, and the pressures of life to just enjoy yourself a little bit. Make time to act like a kid again! The festival is held in downtown Boulder along the Boulder Creek corridor, extending from Broadway to 14th street, between Canyon Blvd. and Arapahoe Ave. The festival runs from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th, and from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday the 29th.
