Taste of Pearl ran for a decade before the pandemic. Downtown Boulder is bringing back this event in 2024 and we could really use your help! Taste is the only fundraising event for Downtown Boulder Community Initiatives (DBCI) - the 501(c)3 that provides free community events year round. This event provides attendees with an unforgettable afternoon exploring Boulder’s tantalizing culinary arts scene and celebrating Colorado’s distinctive wines and distilleries while strolling through some of Downtown Boulder’s most vibrant galleries and retail boutiques. This is a ticketed event for those 21 years of age and older.
