As spring approaches, we feel a quiet awakening that runs parallel to the seeds that poke their heads through the earth before bursting into bloom. We can’t help feeling better as our days warm, we spend more time outside, and green begins to cover the landscape. What better way of celebrating this rebirth, the arrival of spring, and your love of the natural world than attending the Tulip Fairy and Elf Festival.

This Sunday, April 2nd, pull out your wings, face paint, and wands and head to Pearl St. Mall in Boulder for a day of honoring Mother Earth and all the beauty she provides. This festival runs from 1pm to 5pm and marks the official arrival of spring in Boulder. While many adults enjoy this very special event, it’s especially ideal for children, who are deemed little fairies as they wave their wands over the 15,000 tulips that decorate the mall and welcome them to spring. Activities for these little fairies (again, children) include foam sword dueling, a dino dig, art projects, face painting, nature activities, cookie decorating, and more.

Performances are held throughout the day on the 1300 block of Pearl Street. This year, performances include “Walking the Bear,” “A Tale of Cinderella,” and “Teresa Storch and the Sharp Eleven.” At 3:30, the Tulip Fairy and Elf Parade begins at the courthouse. All children are invited to join the Tulip Fairy as she leads the parade around the mall.
