The Shortlist: What To Do in Boulder: 9/30-10/2

Happy Tuesday, Boulderites! This weekend will have us feeling fall – big time. Whether it may be it strolling down Pearl Street, checking out art and films, watching college football, or at a corn maze, we’ve got you covered. Check out all of the great events Boulder has in store this weekend.

1. The 2016 Adventure Film Festival 

This weekend will be filled with three days of culture surrounding the Adventure Film Festival. From Thursday to Saturday, there will be screenings at the Boulder Theater, an Adventure Filmmakers Workshop, the Adventure Street Fair, and a Kids Show. The Adventure Film Festival was envisioned by Johnny Copp in 2006 as a way to bring together independent films, art, and activism. The traveling festival takes place each year in New York, Chicago, Chile, and our home Boulder. Be sure to check it out this weekend!

2. The Colorado Buffaloes v. The Oregon State Beavers

We are absolutely fired up about our second home-game of the year! After last weekend’s 41-38 win against the Oregon Ducks, the Buffs are amped. By defeating such a major PAC-12 powerhouse, the Buffs are moving up in the rankings. With a 3-1 record, and last weekends huge win, fans are all in agreement that #TheRiseIsReal. Head over to Folsom Field this Saturday at 12:30 pm to cheer on the Buffs!

3. Maize in the City 

This Saturday, Maize in the City will open for the season. Maize in the City is a fun family attraction that features a 20+ acre corn maze, a pumpkin patch, pony rides, and a corn kernel box for the little ones to play in. Each day features a different additional event. This Sunday there will be a petting zoo and bouncy houses. Be sure to check out Maize in the City before October 31st.
