Better Boulder is a proud sponsor of Month of Modern – Boulder’s annual celebration of architecture, design, lifestyle, art and culture.

Month of Modern, October 2-25, is a series of special events designed to cultivate a conversation about Colorado modern, and present the Boulder region as one of the nation’s most vibrant hubs of modern design. Over the course of four weeks, Month of Modern will host host fire-side chats, lectures, home tours, film nights and a fantastic wrap party – all designed to educate, inspire and delight! This annual celebration serves as the platform to highlight Boulder’s diverse design community and its contributions to the fabric and economy, together with examples of some of the latest in design.

We hope to see many Better Boulderites during the month of October!
