Save the date for the third annual Culture Crawl on September 19 and 20.  Experience and connect with CU Boulder’s vibrant arts and culture community through two days of free and engaging events.

What to expect

Arts and cultural groups are opening their doors and welcoming attendees into their spaces to show off their unique collections, programming and resources. Events will be at ten different on campus locations and span the entire day on both days. Attendees will receive a map and event schedule to navigate to the next event.

This year’s events will be hosted by the American Music Research Center, CU Art Museum, CU Museum of Natural History, Center for Humanities and the Arts, Center of the American West, College of Music, Department of Art and Art History, Fiske Planetarium, NEST Studio for the Arts, The HIVE @ ALTEC and the University Libraries.


Events to look forward to

A solar system syzygy, an international chocolate tasting and a lush display of botanicals are just a few events you can look forward to during this year’s Culture Crawl.

Some key themes for events include plenty of opportunities to get hands on and make something. There will also be live music, new works and collections on exhibit and of course, food.
