The Pride Festival in Boulder will take place in Boulder Central Park and the Boulder Bandshell (1212 Canyon Blvd) from 11:30 am – 6:30 pm. There will also be musical performances, community partners sharing information, Pride merchandise, and other vendors. Learn more at https://www.outboulder.org/pride.  

“We are thrilled that both festivals are on the same day, just blocks away from each other,” said Jonathan Lev, Executive Director of the Boulder JCC. “We have had a longstanding relationship with Out Boulder and are proud of the work we have done together. Both of our organizations are committed to supporting the community and making Boulder County a more inclusive and welcoming space. We hope that folks will visit both festivals to support and learn from one another and celebrate.” 

“The Boulder Jewish Community Center is a valued partner of Out Boulder County. It is a great opportunity for our communities to attend and enjoy both festivals on June 12 and celebrate the intersections of our communities,” said Mardi Moore, Executive Director of Out Boulder County

Both events are open and free to the entire community.
