SAVE THE DATES! The 2024 Open Studios Tour will once again be held the first three weekends in October. Artists with studios across Boulder County apply each spring to participate in our Tour. Up to 175 of these art professionals are selected. (Artists, scroll down to learn how you can participate).*


The Open Studios TOUR is a free, all-ages, self-guided tour of artists’ working studios, held Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 5:00 pm each day, the first, second, and third weekends of October. This year, those dates are October 5th & 6th, 12th & 13th, and 19th & 20th. Each studio is open to host visitors the first two weekends; artists may elect to participate the third weekend, or not. 


During the Tour, you will meet and get to know artists in a way not possible at any other time. You’ll learn the stories behind their artwork, what motivates and inspires them, as well as some of the techniques that are unique to how they make their work. Some Tour studios offer kids art activities; you’ll be able to sign up to take art classes from those artists who teach, and, of course! you can shop for a perfect piece of art to enhance your own environment or to give as a gift to someone special.


This year’s Tour artists will be announced in May. Watch this page for the list of 2024’s participating artists and to learn when this year’s Tour Guidebook and map will be available.
