Boulder Jewish Festival Almost Here

Wow – it’s really June and the Boulder Jewish Festival is just a little over a week away!

The planning meeting has been working on this event since even before the 2010 Festival. Fundraising and entertainment planning go on year-round (how do you think we got the Maccabeats?!).

A few things we can use help with in the final week:

  • Spread the word – email, facebook, whatever networks you use – please tell a friend!
  • Tell more friends!

Most local organizations can use help at their booths too. If there’s an organization you support in town, please consider volunteering to help at that booth also. One of the comments we get from organizations is that it’s hard to get “out” to see the rest of the event. Can you provide some relief so hard-working agency staff can enjoy the event too?

Did you know? Boulder Jewish Festival is one of the events during Boulder’s Walk and Bike Month. Though parking is free in city lots on Sundays, we encourage you to ride your bike to the Festival to help us reduce our carbon footprint. Community Cycles will be helping out with a complimentary bike valet (located on 14th Street, across from Cheesecake Factory).

Complete details for the event including the entertainment schedule can be found at the Boulder Jewish Festival website. The t-shirts look great, the food lineup is FAB, the kids zone will be so fun, the organizations are set, the artists are prepping and the entertainment – what can we say? This year will ROCK! Get ready! Sunday June 12, 11 am to 5 pm, 3 blocks of Pearl Street Mall and the Boulder Courthouse Lawn – where else?

The Boulder Jewish Festival is entirely planned by a team of dedicated volunteers. Thanks to all sponsors, community organizations, participants and the volunteers who make this one of the premier events in Boulder!

PS did we mention the Maccabeats?

See you on June 12!

Many thanks to this year’s Festival sponsors:
