Summer Fun in Boulder County

Our family loves these long days of summer.  Evenings full of gardening, BBQ or music and friends make us so happy. It feels like summer is in full bloom.

In front of the stage at the Louisville Street FaireThe other day Jeff and I were looking at all the fun concerts and festivals still to come and it occurred to us you might like to know about these fun things too. Maybe we’ll even see you there!


Summer festivals are the best.  Here’s a list our family’s favorites:

Louisville’s Labor Day Fall Festival  We admit to being totally biased but this festival has always been our family’s favorite and even more so now that Kay has organized it for six summers running.  When our kids were little they were always in the parade, now they help organize it.

Lafayette Peach Festival  Eating peach cobbler and slurping peach milkshakes while browsing booths and listening to music makes for a great Saturday.

Boulder County Fair  Colorado’s oldest County Fair is great fun for everyone.  Our family loves the midway rides and the horses.

Nederland Miners Days Experience what it feels like to be a miner in Nederland’s Miners Days.

Boulder Creek Hometown Festival  Join in the great zucchini races and taste some of the best chili around.

Outdoor concerts

Outdoor concerts are the best and fortunately live music is as abundant as the garden’s zucchini in Boulder Valley in the summer time.

Louisville Street Faire Again we’re biased, but we LOVE the Street Faire.  This year our son Ben took on the big job of managing all the vendor booths, food booths and kids inflatables for the Street Faire and we’re so proud of him!  The end of the summer line-up is fantastic so make your way to downtown Louisville on a Friday night.
