Downtown Employee Appreciation Week

Monday - Sunday, June 3 - 9, 2024

Each year, the Downtown Boulder Partnership teams up with various businesses and local groups to celebrate the downtown workforce. It's because of all of you that the downtown district continues to thrive. Your hard work does not go unnoticed and is appreciated more than you can imagine.  Please join us for a week of special offers, happenings and fun to honor Y-O-U!  

All employees (from office and restaurant workers to retail sales staff and everyone else in between) throughout the entire Downtown Boulder Business Improvement District are invited to celebrate Employee Appreciation Week (EAW)! 

To participate, you must pick up a sticker that will identify you as a downtown employee.  Stop by the Downtown Boulder Visitor Information Center (1303 Pearl Street) starting Tuesday, May 28 through Sunday, June 9 from 10 am - 8 pm daily.  You may pick up stickers for everyone at your company, plus a BOGO treat from Gelato Boy (while supplies last).  However, only the employee(s) who are in person for the sticker pick-up can enter to win a $100 gift card to Rosetta Hall!  Additionally, the City of Boulder is offering a limited number of $5 credits in downtown parking garages.  Additional details will be distributed at sticker pick-up.

This year, you will find the return of fun traditions like Office Olympics and new features such as our employee spotlights.  We also have special opportunities for employees of businesses who are members of Downtown Boulder Partnership.  Look through the sections below to learn more about the fun ways we are celebrating all downtown employees!

Check back often for updates. Questions?  Email us.
