Boulder JCC Celebrates Five Years Since Opening

On September 14, 2016, the Boulder JCC officially opened its doors to the public at their current location on Oreg Avenue. This afternoon, September 23, 2021, the Boulder JCC held an outdoor party to celebrate the building being open for five years. Well, to celebrate the fifth anniversary since opening day, since technically, the building was closed for a chunk of year 5, during the pandemic.

The current health environment, while an improvement over the pre-vaccine days of March 2020 through May, 2021, still encouraged an outdoor party vs. an indoor celebration, and didn’t slow the Boulder JCC down at all. Over 500 people registered for the event, and attendance seemed nearly that many, but very spread out among the tables and tents set up on the west side of the building.

The early crowd favored preschoolers and their parents, with a Jeff and Paige concert, giant bubble-blowing and human-powered snow cones from Big Wheel Sno Cones.

After 6:00 pm, The Good Kind took over the stage and played music suitable to an adult party, and the crowd shifted towards grown-ups.

The food variety was excellent, with offerings from:
