From Sept. 11 to 15, 2013, the City of Boulder and communities across the Front Range experienced significant rainfall that led to flooding, loss of life and widespread damage. Ten years later, we reflect on the strength of our community and the work we've done to prepare for future floods.

    To commemorate one decade since the flood, community members are invited to share their reflections and stories of resilience and strength through audio clips, art, sculpture, written works and any other media that expresses their experience. Some works will also be displayed in the City of Boulder Main Library, just off the Canyon Gallery from September to December, and showcased at the What’s Up Boulder community event on Sept. 10, 2023.

    Since September 2013, staff from the City of Boulder and Mile High Flood District (MHFD) has been collecting flood damage information from the community, site visits, surveys and FEMA data that tell the story of this devastating event.
