March ushers in a host of interesting events, both in person and online throughout Boulder County. As winter slowly leaves and spring creeps in, there’s plenty to do in our beautiful city indoors and out. Here are a few we are most looking forward to:
Creative Nations Conversations with Walter Pourier
When: 3/4, 7:00 pm
Where: Dairy Arts Center, virtual
Boulder’s acclaimed Dairy Arts Center is at it again with a bunch of interesting events in March. Executive Director Melissa Fathman will lead a discussion with Walt Pourier, the founder of Nakota Designs and former Artist in Residence at the Denver Art Museum. Don’t miss this conversation and the chance to learn about alternative art, indigenous prophecies, and so much more.
Comedy Circus Unicycling Show
When: 3/14, 2:30 – 3:30
Featuring a professional unicycler in a white, rainbow onesie, this circus cycling show shouldn’t be missed. Enjoy the warm weather at an undisclosed location. For those interested in catching an afternoon juggling show, email email@example.com and reference “Boulder Show” in the subject line and you’ll receive the location details. If you’ve never seen a person riding a 12-foot unicycle and tossing dangerous objects – like knives and torches – now’s your chance.
Hawaiian Hula Lessons
When: 3/14, 5:00 – 6:00
Where: A Place to B
Take a hula lesson from professional dancer and teacher, Miriam Paisner. This experienced Hawaiian dancer lived and studied Dance Ethnology from the University of Hawaii and Manoa and now seeks to bring her experience to Boulder. In one-hour lessons, guests will learn the history, movement, and intention behind hula. Email Miriam Paisner to sign up.
An Evening with Oteil Burbridge Trio
When: 3/16, doors at 7:00, show at 8:00
Where: Boulder Theater
The first night of this musical legend is already sold out, but tickets are available for night two. The two-time Grammy-winning bassist Oteil Burbridge is set to perform with Joey Porter, of The Motet, and Chris Pandolfi, of The Infamous Stringdusters. For those missing live music, this show offers an awesome way to get back into the swing of things.
Open Wall: Call for Artists!
When: 3/26, 2:00 – 8:00
Where: Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art
Each year, BMoCA opens its doors to artists of all types in a one-of-a-kind exhibition and art sale. March 26th marks the kick off Boulder Arts Week, and “Open Wall” is a great way to celebrate. Visit the museum to learn about local painters, sculptors, performers, and more. Pick up a piece of original artwork and keep Boulder’s vibrant creative community alive.
With more in-person events happening in March, we’re hopeful that our city can once again begin to open up safely. Continued support of music, the arts, and local businesses is what we all need to thrive. We are certainly looking forward to bumping into Boulderites around town this spring!
