The Shortlist: 5/27 – 5/29

Boulder has some great activities lined up this weekend to kickoff the unofficial start of Summer. There are a ton of events that are fun for both kids and adults. Avoid sitting in the hours of holiday weekend traffic, and stay home in Boulder to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend!

1. Pastries on the Path

On every last Friday of the month during April, May, and June, three amazing Boulder organizations Community Cycles, Boulder Food Rescue, and Conscious Coffees join forces to offer free coffee and fresh pastries to bike commuters in the Boulder community. This Friday, May 27th, Pastries on the Path will be stationed on the Boulder Creek Path at Broadway and Canyon from 8-9 AM. Be sure to ride by to get your day started right. This is an awesome way to get a jumpstart on Boulder’s June Walk and Bike Month. Click here for more information!

2. Boulder Creek Festival

This year will mark the 29th annual Boulder Creek Festival! The festival is considered to be Boulder County’s favorite event all year. The weekend long event has something for everyone with over 9 separate event areas, 500 vendors, 4 stages, and dozens of carnival rides and games. The event areas include but are not limited to, The Art Show, Kids’ Place, Outdoor Adventures, and the Spirit of Boulder. The festival will close up on Memorial Day with its signature event, The Duck Race, on Boulder Creek. Be sure to stop by this weekend for food, drinks, and fun! Click here for more information.

3. Family Day Paint

Boulder’s own paint and wine studio, POSH, is hosting a family day this Sunday from 2-4 PM. The focus of the class will be “Poppy Pleasure”, inspired by all of the beautiful Boulder blossoms. No artistic abilities necessary here – the entire class is guided by step-by-step instructions to help each artist create their own unique masterpiece. Online registration and a fee of $10 for kids and $30 for adults is required beforehand. Click here for more information!
