Firefly Handmade is excited to once again be a part of the Downtown Boulder Fall Fest on the world-famous Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall and surrounding downtown streets. 

 

Fall Fest draws an average of 70,000 weekend visitors, combining live music, a beer/wine/margarita garden, children’s activities and 5 blocks packed with 100+ fabulous Firefly Handmade artisans.

 

In addition to the thousands of loyal Firefly shoppers from throughout the Boulder/Denver metro area, you can expect regional, national and international tourists, and college students from the nearby University of Colorado to comprise the majority of attendees visiting Pearl Street and your Firefly booth space.

 

About The Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall - The cultural, social and retail hub of Boulder, the Mall is a four block segment of Pearl Street closed to vehicle traffic, filled with one of a kind boutiques, nationally celebrated restaurants, and thrilling street performers. Framed at the west end of Pearl Street by the foothills of the majestic Rockies, the Mall has numerous restored buildings dating back to the 1880’s gold mining era which surround the brick walkways, shade trees, fountains, sculptures, and flower gardens that define this unique pedestrian environment.
