What do great local Jewish musicians, beautiful Judaica, booths featuring leading local Jewish organizations and a gaga pit have in common? You can enjoy all of them at the annual Boulder Jewish Festival!

This June, the Festival will celebrate its 22nd year bringing Jews and non-Jews together for a unique and wonderful event that showcases and celebrates our thriving Jewish Community.

The Festival takes place on Sunday, June 19, 2016 – Father’s Day! Plus, being a few weeks later than usual may bring more summer-like weather.  And since it is Father’s Day, there are unique additions to the Festival to honor and celebrate fathers and father figures. Venture over to Pearl Street Mall as an excellent addition to a fun-filled Dad’s day itinerary.

The Boulder Jewish Festival welcomes a mostly new volunteer team. After years of volunteering, Cheryl Fellows and many others from the legacy, hardworking committee have retired as leaders and organizers of this epic event.  A new volunteer committee has been in place for several months, and is fired up to bring you many of the same great elements you’ve come to know and love from the Festival, along with a few twists and surprises.  Highlights include an all local musician showcase, Israeli dance and krav maga demos and more. This new Festival committee appreciates the assistance of the previous committee helping to ensure a smooth passing of the torch.

You may be asking, how can I get involved? If you would like to volunteer at the Festival, become a sponsor, or be a part of the event’s Juried Art Show, please contact the organizing committee at boulderjfest@gmail.com. We would love to have you be part of what has historically been one of the most attended and energizing Jewish events of the year!
