The Best Things to Do in Boulder for March 2024




Signs of spring are starting to pop up all over the Front Range, from early-blooming flowers to later sunsets. Make the most of all the extra daylight by adding these March events to your calendar.

Do the Polar Plunge For a Good Cause


Head to Boulder Reservoir on March 9 for the annual Polar Plunge, which helps raise money for Special Olympics Colorado. Registration starts at 11 a.m. and the plunge kicks off at noon. Even if you can’t participate, you can still donate or show your support as a spectator. The organization hopes to raise
$726,000 from the Polar Plunge series to support its sports, health, education and athlete leadership programs.

Can’t make it all the way to Washington, D.C. or Japan to see the annual spring cherry blossoms? Venture down to Denver instead. From March 8 through April 28, Death & Co Denver will be transforming its intimate Suite 6A into an immersive cherry blossom experience. Located inside the Ramble Hotel, the Sakura Blossom Bar will be decked out with more than 400 cherry blossoms lining the ceiling. Listen to vintage Japanese records play on a turntable while munching on light bites and sipping cocktails.

Attend the Grand Opening of Open Studios Gallery Downtown


R Gallery is now Open Studios Gallery Downtown, as Open Studios and the Boulder Art Association take over operations. You can celebrate the “new” gallery on March 14 during a grand opening event that includes art-making, demonstrations and specials at the Boulder Wine Bar. Enjoy the artwork of Rob Lantz, Steven Hook, Ashton Lacy Jones, Terry Cook and Cory Miller.

Watch “Titanic, The Musical”


The tragic sinking of the Titanic in April 1912 continues to fascinate, even more than a century later. For three nights this month (March 15, 16 and 17), you can watch “Titanic, The Musical” by Maury Yeston and Peter Stone at Macky Auditorium on the CU Boulder campus. The Broadway show, which debuted in 1997, ran for more than 800 performances and won a Tony for best musical—and it’s been enthralling audiences ever since.

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is on March 17, and there are lots of different ways to celebrate in Boulder. Head to Rayback Collective for free green carnations, face painting, adoptable dogs, Irish dancers, live music and drink specials, or do a bar crawl that starts at Velvet Elk Lounge. For a more active adventure, participate in the Lucky Leprechaun 5K Fun Run at Twisted Pine Brewing (which conveniently doubles as a qualifier for the Bolder Boulder!).

Wish J.S. Bach A Happy Birthday at the Boulder Bach Festival


This month marks the end of the 2023-24 Boulder Bach Festival. The finale takes place on J.S. Bach’s birthday with a performance called “Old & New Dreams” at the Dairy Arts Center on March 21. The show features Vadim Gluzman on his Stradivarius violin performing with Boulder Bach’s CORE Ensemble.

Help Support the Bees With This Special Menu

Bees—and other pollinators—are vital to the world’s food production. And, as you likely know, they’re facing numerous threats, from pesticides to climate change. You can support the bees—and enjoy a night out—by visiting Tamayo between March 26 and April 22. During that time, chef Richard Sandoval will be offering his “Viva Abejas” menu, which means “long live the bees” in Spanish. The special menu features plant-based food and beverage specials that incorporate bee-centric products, like honey, bee pollen and avocado.
