Every Wednesday from June to August, Boulder’s iconic Pearl Street Mall has been THE place to celebrate summer and Boulder’s extensive music legacy – and this year is no different, as Bands on the Brick's celebrates its 20th anniversary.
As the presenting sponsor, we bring together families and music lovers from across the community to join Pearl Street businesses to celebrate Bands on the Brick's 10-week series of live music and dancing under the stars, which is free and open to the public.
“We sponsor Bands on the Bricks because we are a community organization,” says Owner and Founder of RE/MAX of Boulder Tom Kalinski. “We love our friends and neighbors and our community. We want to help make Boulder the best home possible.”
Each Wednesday evening kicks off with an outdoor beer, wine and margarita garden at 5:30 pm, serving Rio Margaritas and beer from Boulder County’s heralded local breweries West Flanders and Avery Brewing Company.
This year, the concert series organized by Downtown Boulder will culminate on August 9 in a 40th anniversary celebration of the creation of the Pearl Street Mall, which also coincides with RE/MAX of Boulder’s 40th anniversary as one of the first RE/MAX offices established nationally. The final event features band headliner Chris Daniels and the Kings with Freddi Gowdy. In conjunction, Downtown Boulder will see a huge party for one of the most beloved races in Boulder -- the Pearl Street Mile.
In addition, we have invited a different nonprofit organization each week to have a table at the event. The goal is to raise awareness and gain support from Boulder residents for the outstanding local nonprofits that work daily to keep the Boulder community healthy.
Children’s Miracle Network/Children’s Hospital Colorado will have a table on July 12. Recently Children's Miracle Network named RE/MAX of Boulder a “Miracle Office” in response to its donations that make an impact on the lives of sick and injured children and their families in Colorado.
Other nonprofit organizations to be featured include: There With Care, Attention Homes, Imagine! Foundation, Sutherland Bipolar Center, and Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Non-Violence (SPAN).
This year, we're honored to mark our 40th year as trusted community experts, having earned our place as Boulder Valley’s top real estate agency. RE/MAX of Boulder was recently named the No. 1 single RE/MAX office in the U.S. for 2016 total sales volume, making it the eighth time the company earned the No. 1 ranking – as well as having been voted Best Real Estate Group in Boulder Weekly’s Best of Boulder.
With more than 100 Realtors who average 14 years of experience, RE/MAX of Boulder is made up of local community experts who live, work, play, and raise their kids in Boulder Valley. Community involvement runs through the culture at RE/MAX of Boulder, evidenced by the Realtors’ commitment to charitable service and leadership for local nonprofits.
