Boulder - pearl street arts fest




One of only two Colorado shows named in Sunshine Artist magazine's 100 Best Fine Art & Design shows in 2018 - based on feedback from artists like you - Pearl Street Arts Fest is a celebration of visual art on display in our beautiful outdoor gallery nestled in the heart of downtown Boulder. Local artists will be joined by artists from around the country to showcase their work. The arts fest has been a “must do” event in Boulder for over 40 years!  

The Fest will jury the finest artists from Boulder, Colorado and the nation, with an emphasis on fine arts and fine crafts. Occurring in the height of the tourist season, the Pearl Street Arts Fest is expected to draw more than 70,000 attendees over a 2-day period. Cash prizes for the best of show and medium categories, ample volunteer support, breakfast (including an awards breakfast on Sunday with your fellow artists), water and snacks will help sustain you throughout the weekend.
