Things to do in Boulder during Summer

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival has been named as one of the top three Shakespeare festivals in the nation by TIME Magazine. Under the stars on the University of Colorado campus:

Boulder's summer classic music festival at the historic Chautauqua park

The largest friendliest farmers market in Colorado in the heart of downtown Boulder.

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art

The Dushanbe Teahouse, the only structure of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. The stunning teahouse was given to the city of Boulder by its sister city of Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a symbol of U.S. and Soviet relations. In downtown Boulder, open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Camping Options


A wise person would have a car to do this, but Boulder environs offer many fantastic places to go camping. Bring your own tent and emerge refreshed every day for the conference.

"Various locations near Nederland and Ward
Call (800) 280-CAMP for more information.

"In the mountains high above Boulder are a variety of National Forest campgrounds. Note that at elevations greater than 8000 feet, summer afternoon showers are common and nights can be rather chilly — please plan accordingly. Popular campsites include the Kelly-Dahl campground, located three miles south of Nederland on Highway 119 (map); the Pawnee Campground, located at Brainard Lake near Ward (map); and the Peacefully Valley/Camp Dick campground, 18 miles north of Nederland on Highway 72 (map). These campgrounds charge a US Forest Service fee (plus a Brainard Lake fee at Pawnee). Most sites fill up during peak seasonal times."
