23rd Boulder Jewish Festival Big Success

The 23rd Annual Boulder Jewish Festival took place on the Courthouse Lawn on the Pearl St. Mall on Sunday, and it was a big success!  The weather was completely cooperative, without a single shower and warm temperatures that encouraged spending time outdoors in Boulder.

The day started with the first annual Family Fun Run, which led to the Main Stage and Jeff and Paige performing for the younger set and their parents.  Several new things marked the 23rd festival as different: Most of 14th St. between the Mall and Spruce St. was closed off for an inflatable slide, new entertainment and food booths, and kid activities, and new community booths as well.  The musical line up was also broad and interesting, from Klezmer to Rock to JewGrass to World Music, there was something for everyone.

Kudos to Festival Director Elizabeth Barrekette and the rest of her committee: Dana Bondy, Amanda Glucklich, Bryan Goldstein, Rebecca Habalow, Doogie Levine, Terri Miro, Emily Norman, Monet Rodriguez-Stoneman, Marla Shapiro, Adam Sloat, Matt Vargas, Melissa Vargas, Agamit Yehuda and Jodi Zicklin.  For more information, visit BoulderJewishFestival.org.
