Friday

Boulder Arts Week This is Boulder’s first large-scale celebration of its arts and cultural offerings. The festivities include art walks, exhibitions, performances, artist demonstrations, lectures, readings and symposia. Fun Fact: Boulder has the eighth largest concentration of artists in the country.

The Bizarro Slam Typical poetry slam rules are “tossed out the nearest window into oncoming traffic and completely obliterated by the waste management truck, which just happens to be operated by an overly anxious and half-drunk driver who’s decided that today is the day he pushes the five ton truck to its limits,” according to its organizers. The slam begins at 8 p.m. at Gypsy House Cafe and proceeds go toward this year’s Let the Children PLAY: E(art)h Day in the Park on April 20.

Saturday

Hops & Handrails Beer Fest & Rail Jam This hybrid beer fest-snowboard competition kicks off at noon at Left Hand Brewery in Longmont. Sip on beers from the finest Colorado craft breweries and take advantage of Left Hand’s 30-foot ski ramp. Proceeds from the event benefit SOS Outreach and the Left Hand Brewing Foundation. Buy your ticket HERE.

Vegan Prom Held at Mercury Cafe, this dance party is organized by Nooch Vegan Market and proceeds benefit Peaceful Prairie animal sanctuary. Revelers can enjoy vegan food (duh), drinks, and live music. Plus, a prom photographer will be on hand to capture the fun. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Buy your ticket HERE.

Sunday

The Festival of Balloons This event offers the chance to see balloon art from all over the globe– works that were created specifically for World Balloon Convention competitions. Expect huge balloon sculptures (some even feature animation), intricate, twisted balloon figures, dresses made out of balloons, and themed party decor. Plus, you can purchase custom  balloon creations.
