The Boulder Star

2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of the Boulder Star on Flagstaff Mountain! The beloved Boulder Star on Flagstaff Mountain was first lit in December 1947 and has made its holiday appearance every year since. The Boulder Chamber is proud of its role as the steward of this community asset and thankful for the support it receives, through sales of the Boulder Star Card, Star Wine, and the generosity of other partners, to keep the Boulder Star shining bright.

About the 2017 Boulder Star Card

The 2017 Boulder Star Card artwork was created by Gayle Crites. Crites received her BA from Colorado State University where she concentrated in printmaking. During her formative years, Crites worked as a designer and illustrator, and then developed a significant following for her work in oil as well as contemporary mixed media. She has been featured nationally in books, museums and galleries, as well as in international exhibitions. Gayle also provided the design for the first Boulder Star Holiday Card and was invited to return with the design for this year’s card for the 70th Anniversary of the Boulder Star.

Thank you to Citywide Banks and to Lord & Reynolds Electrical Services, for partnering on the Boulder Star and finally, we thank you, our Boulder Chamber members, for your continued support in keeping the Boulder Star shining this holiday season.

We wish you a very Happy Holiday Season!
