Atlas and Boulder County AIDS Project's annual variety show, Big Top: A Circus Extravaganza! is a spectacular evening of fabulous sights and songs in support of HIV awareness and prevention. Our troupe of Atlas members and supporters typically feature drag, vocal (both singing and spoken word), comedy and other theatrical talents!

 Date and venue of the next Big Top is to be determined.

candlelight memorial

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial is held every third Sunday in May. BCAP and the Interfaith AIDS Coalition of Boulder co-host a local commemoration.  This annual event of remembrance is an opportunity for activists, family members, and community supporters to gather to honor those lost, and to raise consciousness about the continuing challenges faced by those living with or impacted by HIV.


The Candlelight Memorial program typically includes a reception at BCAP, followed by a silent walk through downtown Boulder and the reading of names of individuals lost to AIDS-related illnesses.

The International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, coordinated by the Global Network of people living with HIV, is one of the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilization campaigns for HIV awareness. Started in 1983, this memorial is led by a coalition of approximately 1,200 community organizations in 115 countries.


Colorado AIDS walk

Team BCAP participates as a partner agency in Festival For Life, produced annually by the Denver Colorado Health Network. In 2018, the event was renamed the Festival For Life from AIDS Walk Colorado. It is the largest one-day AIDS-related fundraising event in the Rocky Mountain region. A portion of the funds raised by Team BCAP benefit HIV services in the Boulder, Broomfield, Gilpin and Clear Creek County region.

WALK/RUN WITH TEAM BCAP: 2023 Festival for Life took place on  Saturday, August 26, in Cheesman Park in Denver.
