Bring friends and family for a memorable fall season.
When: now – 10/31
Where: Boulder, CO
This picturesque farm sits within Boulder city limits and has grown up alongside our beautiful town. Mosey through its “u-pick” pumpkin patch until you find the exact orange gourd you’re looking for. Stock up on Indian corn from Munson’s farm stand and snap gorgeous, autumn-inspired photos next to antique farm equipment. Take in the mountain backdrop and crisp weather while enjoying this nearby pumpkin patch.
Cottonwood Farms Pumpkin Patch
When: now – 10/31
Where: Lafayette, CO
Cottonwood Farms delivers a solid dose of nostalgia by providing pumpkin purveyors a red wagon to stock with bulbous orange gourds. Not only does this make for a memorable excursion that kids and kids at heart will love, a Red Flyer Wagon is the perfect prop for autumn photos. After selecting your pumpkin, work your way through the hay bale maze, chase some chickens, and purchase fall produce. This Lafayette farm truly has it all.
School Day Off Camp
When: 10/18, 9am – 3pm
Where: Kinesis Dance
Instead of having the kids spend their day off school hanging at home, let them experience this fun dance camp hosted by Kinesis Dance. At School Day Off Camp, participants will enjoy Halloween-themed crafts, dancing through the decades, a costume party, and more. Your child is sure to come home with some fun stories, new dance moves, and a lot less energy than they left the house with.
Boos & Brews
When: 10/31, time TBD
Where: Avery Brewing
Boulder can’t let a holiday pass without a celebratory 5k. Boos & Brews, hosted by Avery Brewing, encourages Coloradans of all athletic ability to lace up and hit the trail. Earn your Halloween candy, caramel apples, and pumpkin-spice beers by jogging a quick three miles in the gorgeous fall weather. Clink glasses to a job well done and hang out on the picturesque patio at this Gunbarrel brewery.
When: 10/31, 3 – 6pm
Where: Pearl Street Mall
This highly-anticipated Halloween event is back after taking a hiatus last year. The Munchkin Masquerade is the cutest thing to happen to Pearl Street each fall. Dress up your little ones and head to downtown Boulder for an afternoon of tricks and treats along the pedestrian mall. Join in on fun, kid-friendly activities, collect candy from charming boutiques, and spy other miniature ghosts, goblins, fairies, and princesses.
Each season brings a host of new activities to our picturesque foothills town. Don’t miss the opportunities to get outside, enjoy some Halloween-themed fun, and take full advantage of what Boulder has to offer.
