Nearly one year ago, Boulder lost 10 beloved community members in a mass shooting. Our collective commitment to remember that day, the victims of that day’s tragic events and to remain supportive of their families, our neighbors and each other illustrates the true strength of our community.

Plans for commemorating March 22

All events are open to the public and will be held outdoors (rain or shine).

  • A patrol car will be parked in front of the Boulder Police Department (1805 33rd St.) for individuals to leave their condolences if they so choose from Friday, March 18, through the evening of Tuesday, March 22. Any items left in remembrance will be given to the family of Officer Eric Talley and/or saved at the department.

  • A Line of Duty Death commemoration at the Boulder Police Department at 2 p.m. on March 22. This event will be livestreamed, and media area welcome to cover as they wish.

  • A moment of silence wherever you are at 2:30 p.m. on March 22. All City of Boulder offices and operations will recognize that moment of silence at 2:30 p.m.

  • Communitywide Day of Remembrance gathering at the Glen Huntington Bandshell from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on March 22. We anticipate that several state, federal and local officials will be in attendance, and many will be available for interviews. This event will NOT be livestreamed.

These events reflect the respected wishes of contacted victim family members who endured the unimaginable events of March 22, 2021. We look forward to the opportunity to support them and honor their wishes as all plans are finalized.

Information being provided now to help with your advance planning. Additional information that could help with coverage, such as logistics for interviews, will be provided as we get closer to March 22.

Additional events are being planned by private organizers as tributes or remembrances on March 22, 2022, and in the days before and after. Mental Health Partners and the Boulder Strong Resource Center will post details about these opportunities on the Boulder Strong Resource Center website as they become available.
