2021 Community Events Produced by Downtown Boulder
Our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted in one way or another by COVID-19. Of utmost importance is the health and safety of you, friends, family, co-workers, and the communities in which we live, work and visit.
As we look to our 2021 events season, we will be strictly following the guidelines of our partners at the City of Boulder and Boulder County Public Health to determine the safest course of action. While we hope this will include limited in-person events for our community, we are prepared to continue postponing our events should it continue to be deemed unsafe for large groups to gather. We have made the difficult decision now to simply postpone a few of our events until 2022 (see details below).
We will post updates as we have them here, and provide information on any virtual or in-person events in downtown Boulder on our website and in our bi-weekly newsletter. For information on exhibitor or sponsorship opportunities, please contact us.
