The Colorado Front Range has enjoyed a
fair amount of snow lately, but warmer months will be here before we know it.
Boulder County makes the most of its sunniest months by hosting several outdoor
events that will appeal to residents and tourists alike, while nearby towns
give Longmont locals an excuse to explore the great state of Colorado, beyond
their already-amazing “backyard”. These are some of the most popular outdoor festivals and events in and
around Longmont, scheduled for Spring and Summer 2022.
Fairy & Elf Festival: April 24
Kick off Spring 2022 at the Pearl Street
Mall’s annual Tulip Fairy & Elf Festival in Boulder. Enjoy a bite to eat at one of Boulder’s premiere dining establishments, then watch as the colorful Tulip Fairy and her pint-sized helper
fairies and elves “wake up the tulips” along west Pearl Street to officially
greet Spring. Activities will also be available for kids from 1-5pm.
Farmer’s Market: April 2 - Nov. 19
Stroll through Longmont’s weekly farmers market every Saturday between
8 am and 1 pm, organized by Boulder County Farmers Market. The market starts up on April 2nd and runs until November 20th. Enjoy fresh,
locally grown produce, food trucks, live music, and a variety of artisan goods
Creek Fest: May 28 - 30
Memorial Day weekends in Boulder County
are celebrated in style at the annual Boulder Creek Fest. This year’s festival will feature a full weekend of creek side live music, local vendors, and family-friendly activities in the
city of Boulder.

Make your Memorial Day unforgettable at
the Bolder Boulder.
Named the best 10k in the country

Music Festival: August 5 - 7
Enjoy a music-filled weekend mountain
getaway at the SnowyGrass Music Festival
this summer. Less than an hour’s drive from Longmont, this 3-day event in Estes
Park is packed with live bluegrass performances from groups such as The Way
Down Wanderers and Blue Canyon Boys. For the full festival experience, there
are convenient camping sites
near the event, or book a hotel
in town for a more comfortable stay closer to urban amenities.
County Fair: August 11 - 14
The Boulder County Fair
takes place on the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont from August 11th to
the 14th. This beloved tradition gives 4H members the chance to compete in
various disciplines, hoping to earn the right to compete in larger fairs while
the greater public is invited to enter their own art and home projects in the Creative Living
competition. This year is extra special as all of the exhibits and events are
scheduled to be open to the public for the first time in two years!
These events are just a small taste of
what you could do this spring and summer
in and around Longmont, Colorado. Enjoy all that the Front Range has to offer
