Advertise in The NoBo Book

We are looking for local businesses to place ads in our annual magazine publishing in August 2023. Our initial printing will be 2,000 copies and will include all the NoBo Art member profiles, First Friday Art Walk info, local showings and events, your ad, and anything else related to art and culture in Boulder!

Who will see your ad?

We will distribute the FREE NoBo book and your ad to hotels, the Boulder Visitor’s Bureau, the Boulder Public Library, Pearl Street kiosks, the Boulder Chamber, at our First Friday Art Walks, inside local businesses, and more!

Why should you put an ad in a free magazine?

First of all, it’s free for consumers to pick up! For a general idea of what you’d be tapping into, in 2012 there were 2,820,827 Boulder visitors who spent an estimated $375,779,053 ( Magazines also hold more attention than TV advertisements that may not be pertinent and disappear in a few seconds. A magazine can hold longer attention and sticks around. Whoever picks up our NoBo book already holds arts + culture close to their heart, and are more likely to read every page than a newspaper, giving your ad the best chance to reach eyeballs.
