After A Two-Year Hiatus, The Boulder Jewish Festival Returns On June 12, 2022

After a two-year hiatus, the Boulder Jewish Festival will return to Downtown Boulder on June 12, 2022. This free one-day celebration of Jewish arts and culture has grown immensely since the first Festival over 25 years ago, but the ties that bind it together are still strong. From its beginning, the Boulder Jewish Festival has been volunteer-run and focused on showcasing the organizations, resources, and offerings of the Jewish community. Everyone is welcome to join and explore beautiful arts and culture. With food vendors, art and Judaica, live music, and much more the Festival brings together an estimated 15,000 people from across the Denver and Boulder areas.

Each year, a dedicated committee of volunteers spend months and countless hours planning the Festival and are joined day-of by many other volunteers who help with set up and all other needs. Volunteer opportunities for the day of the festival will be posted on May 1. 

This year is shaping up to be the biggest festival to date, with a new vendor corridor along 14th Street dedicated to a wide variety of food and beverages. There are expected to be even more offerings of incredible entertainment and art to be experienced at this year’s Boulder Jewish Festival as well.  

The Boulder Jewish Festival is now accepting applications for Food Vendors and Artists.  Artists are encouraged to reach out to for consideration and details regarding the event.  The newly expanded food corridor also allows for more vendors and those selling food products to join the festival this year.
