This March, Boulder ushers in a host of exciting events to cap off the end of winter and celebrate the upcoming springtime. From outdoor festivities to indoor shows, our city never sleeps when it comes to engaging community events. Here’s what we’re getting into this month.
Marshall Fire Dinner
When: 3/2, 5:30 – 7:30
Where: Museum of Boulder
For those affected by the Marshall Fire and in need of community support, RSVP to this evening dinner hosted in partnership with the Museum of Boulder, T/ACO and The Post. Enjoy visiting the museum after hours while meeting others who have similar lived experiences. This is a family event and children of all ages are welcome. Take the time to rest, relax, and reconnect with our incredible community that is even stronger in times of strife.
Natani Notah: Inner Lining
When: 3/3 – 6/12
Artist Natani Notah created her Inner Lining exhibit through mixing natural and synthetic materials to express her experience and identity as a Diné woman. Notah explains that her work is meant to evoke dialogue and conversation about the colonization of indigenous communities in the United States that is still occurring. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness colonialism through the eyes of one who has experienced it and whose communities are still experiencing it, first hand.
The Long Walk
When: 3/4, 8:30 pm
Film buffs will not want to miss this. The Long Walk is the first Lao film opening in U.S. theaters, ever. The film follows an aging man as he travels into his own past to deal with spirits who won’t let him move forward. Check out the official trailer, here.
Hapa Sushi Community Dinner with Yoga Pearl
When: 3/9, 7:15 – 8:15
Where: Hapa Sushi on Pearl
There’s nothing better than reconnecting with old friends and making new ones over a tasty meal. Coming together through dinner is an age-old human tradition in which we get the chance to relax and unwind in the company of good people. In partnership with Yoga Pearl, Hapa Sushi Community Dinner gives us this chance. And, bonus points for attending a yoga session beforehand to really zen out.
Brides of March
When: 3/15, 7 – 10pm
Where: Starts at the Boulder County Courthouse
Talk about a unique event. This pub crawl invites people of all genders and non-binary individuals of all backgrounds and walks of life to don their finest wedding wear – wedding dresses preferred – and take to the streets. Why? Because, the host states that “gender is a messy construct, Boulder has become too stuffy, and COVID stole all the fun”. Bridesmaids dresses and tuxedos are also permitted. The bars have yet to be announced but check the event page for more info!
St. Madness 4-Day Weekend
When: 3/17 – 3/20
Where: Avanti Food & Beverage
Experience the joining of March’s two biggest events – March Madness and St. Patricks Day at Avanti Food & Beverage on Pearl Street. Immerse yourself in the mayhem of St. Madness 4 Day Weekend by bellying up to the bar and rubbing elbows with other locals over pints of green beer. You won’t even need to step out for dinner – grab some tasty eats, like loaded arepas, from Avanti’s various food vendors.
Regardless of the weather, there’s plenty to do in March around Boulder. Dine on delish cuisine in the company of friends, extend your community network, or get wild in a thrifted wedding dress on a pub crawl like no other. Our city and its awesome residents are sure showing off this month.
Saving the Reef One Fragment at a Time: Roatan Coral Restoration
When: 3/24, 7:30 – 9pm
Where: Ocean First
Get a glimpse into the world of coral restoration! Ocean First’s dive instructor, Chief Operating Officer of our sister organization Ocean First Education, and trip leader, Cathy Christopher, will take attendees through the experiences of Ocean First’s coral restoration trip to Roatan, Honduras last October. Learn about coral basics and stony coral as well as the degradation of coral reefs throughout the Caribbean, most recently from stony coral tissue loss disease that is devastating these ecosystems. This event has a virtual option, as well.
