The City of Boulder is proud to present a handful of signature Arts in the Park performances each season. The program continues to provide accessible opportunities for the community to engage with each other and the arts. The program was created in 2021, serving as a boost to the economy, clearing barriers for local arts organizations, reactivating Boulder’s Civic Area and helping rebuild our connection with each other and the arts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This summer, enjoy performances from the Boulder Ballet, Boulder Opera and the Boulder Symphony at the Glen Huntington Bandshell.
