The Shortlist: What To Do in Boulder: July 15th – 17th

Summer is in full swing and so are the events and activities in Boulder. This weekend we have a few very “Boulder” events lined up. While you could participate in community events anywhere, this weekend’s events really showcase the funky, outdoorsy, wholesome town that Boulder is.

1. Tube to Work Day

This Friday, July 15th, marks the ending of alternative transportation week. Why not go out with a bang by participating in 9th annual Tube to Work Day? The tubes will be launched from Eben G. Fine Park at 8 AM sharp, and will disembark wherever is closest to your place of employment. This is a BYOT (bring your own tube) event, tubes will not be provided. For more information about this awesome event, please click here.

2. The Pearl Street Arts Fest

This Saturday and Sunday will be the 2016 Pearl Street Arts Fest. The festival showcases artists from all over Colorado, as well as artists from all over the country. The variety of art ranges from modern sculptures, to contemporary crafts, to classic paintings, and beyond. The festival will be held on the Pearl Street Mall between 11th Street and 15th Street, and will include a rock climbing wall, art exhibits, and a food court. This event is great for people of all ages. Click here for more information.

3. Harvesting and Composting in Your Garden

What better way to close off the weekend than with a little therapeutic hands-on learning? This Sunday, July 17th, the Boulder Public Library will be hosting a course on Harvesting and Composting in Your Garden. This course will focus on building and maintaining a compost bin. Class will be held in The Library Edible Learning Garden, and will be led by representatives from Eco-Cycle. Click here for more information.
