The Pearl Street Arts Fest began as the Downtown Boulder Art Fair in 1978. It was the first community event held on the then brand new Pearl Street Mall (which was dedicated on August 6, 1977) – and remains one of the oldest art festivals in the state. The 44th Pearl Street Arts Fest will showcase the talents of over 100 artists from 15 states in a variety of mediums.

Poster Artist

The 2024 featured poster artist is Kristen Ross, who is joining us from Boulder, CO!

Drawing inspiration from her love of the outdoors, Kristen Ross’s acrylic landscape paintings pair vivid color with intricate detail to invoke the joy of experiencing wild spaces first-hand and to emphasize the importance of protecting them.

You can pick up a copy of the commemorative poster from our partners at Art Source International (1237 Pearl Street) or at Kristen's booth during the show (#1212).
