Hello Newsletter Readers,

Top o' the morning to you! Happy (almost) St. Patrick's Day. Whether you are of Irish descent or just full of Irish spirit, we hope you find time to celebrate. For some festive ideas, check out this week's Foodie Friday which highlights specials downtown from a bar crawl to afternoon tea.

You also might have noticed that this newsletter looks a bit different...who says we can't use a little facelift every once in a while? While we spruced up the design, rest assured that we will still deliver the same great content to your inbox bi-weekly. From downtown happenings to new job listings to monthly shopping specials, this newsletter is your go-to source for exploring all downtown Boulder has to offer (we certainly think there is a lot). For even more things to do downtown, check out our events blog which we update monthly!

Today's newsletter highlights the upcoming Boulder Arts Week, honors the women who keep our downtown moving and shaking and shares a new exhibit at the Museum of Boulder. So grab those calendars!


Last newsletter we asked what brings you the most joy - the top answer was time with friends. This week, we are curious about your St. Patrick's Day traditions...

What is your favorite thing about St. Patrick's Day?

Boulder Arts Week

March 25 - April 2, 2022

Boulder Arts Week is Boulder’s only large-scale, inclusive celebration of our community’s vibrant arts and cultural offerings. The City of Boulder is home to thousands of artists and over 140 arts organizations - so show them some much-needed love during this week filled with events and activities! From hands-on classes to film screenings and exhibits, there is something creative for every type of artist and art enthusiast. And be sure to take the self-guided Mural Walking Tour by Street Wise Arts to see the city from a new perspective (our Intern Alex took the tour - discover what he found)!

Finally, don't forget to vote for the Student Banner People's Choice Award while walking the Mall. Incredible young artists from Columbine Elementary School, Casey Middle School and Boulder High School created 42 banners centered around the theme of social justice that adorn the Pearl Street Mall light poles. The student whose banner receives the most votes will win a $100 Downtown Boulder Gift Card!

Women's History Month

March 2022

March is Women's History Month, which is a good opportunity to appreciate all the women business leaders downtown (but they should be recognized all the time)! Without their tenacity and innovation, downtown would not be the vibrant place it is today. To learn more about women-owned and led businesses, check out this page.
