What to Know About COVID-19 and Downtown Boulder
(updated April 6, 2020)


The Downtown Boulder Partnership (DBP)  is staying in close contact with our partners locally (City and County of Boulder, Boulder Chamber, the Boulder Convention & Visitors Bureau and Colorado Tourism Office); throughout the state of Colorado (Downtown Colorado, Inc.) and nationally (International Downtown Association) to keep up-to-date information readily available. We are committed to insuring that the public is provided with accurate, updated information about public health conditions, not only in Boulder but throughout Colorado.

DBP's guiding principle is to seek and heed the most up-to-date expert guidance, and we urge the public to do the same.   

Closures / Cancelations / Temporary Changes to Business Operations

Colorado is under a statewide Stay-at-Home Order.  For information from the state, go here.

Please take a ticket upon entry and scan it when leaving to open gate.  Note, free parking only applies to City of Boulder garages. (Overnight parking is not allowed; no parking between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. daily.)

How to Support Downtown Boulder Businesses

Love the Local.  This is our organization’s trademarked logo that has more meaning in the current moment than ever before.  Small business owners employ 47% of the private workforce. In Downtown Boulder, over 70% of our businesses are locally owned and operated.  

Many of the employees who work at these businesses are our family, friends and neighbors. This is our time to come together as a community and help. Business owners are taking into account the tremendous impacts - physical, emotional and financial temporarily closing their doors have on their workers and families.

If you can help, please consider these options...buy local online; buy gift cards NOW that can be used later; order takeout or delivery; show support through social channels.  Let the small business community know that we are in this together. Now more than ever #LoveTheLocal

The Downtown Boulder Partnership will be updating this page regularly. If we have missed something, or you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us at info@downtownboulder.org 



Business Assistance:
