40 Years On Pearl

This year is the 40th anniversary of the Pearl Street Mall and to celebrate have collected photos to illustrate and commemorate its rich history! Thank you to everyone that submitted their photos on the Mall from the past 40 years! The collection of photo submissions on this page are also on display outside the Visitor’s Center. 

Join us on Wednesday, August 9th for a commemorative celebration where we will be recognizing 10 businesses that have been on the mall since 1980 or earlier. The celebration begins at 6:30 PM in front of the Courthouse (1300 block of Pearl St.) right before Bands On The Bricks. Come early for one of Boulder's most beloved races, the Pearl Street Mile
