Downtown Boulder Foundation (DBF)

The Downtown Boulder Foundation is a charitable 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining downtown Boulder as the heart and soul of our community. Our staff and volunteers produce over two dozen annual events focused on arts, culture, family entertainment and supporting local business. From fine arts to free concerts on the Pearl Street Mall, DBF events draw nearly 250,000 people downtown every year. We also support other community events that enhance downtown including the Boulder International Film Festival, the Pearl Street Stampedes and the Adventure Film Festival.
