Tough enough to keep going after 20 years.  


Since the year 2000, YS has been dedicated to creating community conversations to bring awareness to important social, political and cultural topics for Boulder County & the North Metro Region. 

Yellow Scene Magazine started out of a two-bedroom apartment in 2000 as a flier printed on yellow paper. With blood, sweat and an awful lot of pure gumption, the publication began to grow, attract some of the best talent in the county and become the award-winning publication we are today.

We’ve often joked that first we’d take over Boulder County, then the North Metro Denver region and finally, the world. Consider two of those checked off our list. In 2009, the Yellow Scene Magazine exploded from a successful East County publication into the North Metro and Boulder County area’s foremost magazine.

We provide engaging, slightly pert, always creative coverage of local and regional news, politics, arts, culture, entertainment and cuisine. We have interviewed powerful politicians (Sen. Michael Bennet), music greats and pop stars (Jason Mraz) and cultural icons (author and foodie revolutionary Michael Pollan and The Cove director Louie Psihoyos). It’s all been in an effort to continually improve the magazine, and, in larger part, to keep up with a rapidly growing and increasingly active and affluent North Metro population that expects as much.

With that said, our role is to not just be a regional news source, but to enliven our readers’ day-to-day by being a resource for food, entertainment, recreation and travel. We expect to close in on the whole world domination thing by the end of the decade.
