On Sunday, Celebrate Jewish Music, Art, and Food at the Boulder Jewish Festival

The 2023 Boulder Jewish Festival scheduled for this Sunday, June 4 on the Pearl Street Mall from 11 AM – 5 PM in front of the Court House is a celebration of Jewish arts, culture, music and food.  The festival is the longest running culture festival in Boulder and it aims to bring the Jewish community together, as well as introduce Jewish culture to the larger community. 

“Food is one area that all cultures can connect around,” says Joy Alice Eisenhauer, Director of the Boulder Jewish Festival. “We are thrilled to present a wide variety of foods connected to the Jewish experience with some of our best local chefs and restaurants. The food is a big draw for the Jewish community, as well as enticement for the whole community to come out.”

The food vendors will be set up along 14th Street between Spruce and Pearl just east of the Courthouse.  The street closure gives everyone a chance to stroll along and check out all the delicious offerings to enjoy on location or take home.

Food vendors include:

Fleishman’s Bagels and Delicatessen

Our flavors are straight from the East coast. We bring you authentic New York style bagels and deli favorites. In true NYC fashion, we hand roll, boil, and bake our bagels. Our menu features all the Classics including our famous Matzo Ball soup.  The festival doesn’t officially start until 11 am. Fleishman’s will be ready early with morning treats ready to eat.   

Button Rock Bakery & Kenny Lou’s Deli

Created daily from scratch, we have an abundance of decadent desserts including cookies, cakes, cupcakes, muffins, scones, brownies, cake pops, cinnamon rolls, gorgeous wedding cakes, corporate event desserts, and more. Our deli is inspired by the family heritage background of Jewish and Italian families, we locked into the perfect menu taking the best of both.

Boychik Kitchen

Boychik; a middle eastern inspired restaurant that offers traditional cuisine with a modern interpretation. Naturally healthy, driven from fresh ingredients, and customizable to dietary preferences.  

LB Kosher Grill

It’s no longer enough just to offer glatt kosher burgers, one needs to serve food that meets the highest secular standards and the Boulder County Center for Judaism is making that happen. When the Boulder Jewish Festival started years ago, Rabbi Pesach and Chany Scheiner, co-directors of the Boulder County Center for Judaism (called Chabad of Boulder at that time) had a desire to get more Kosher foods within the festivities. Thus, the Kosher Grill was born.


We make handcrafted gelato & sorbet on a stick! We make everything fresh, daily, in small batches, at our local creamery, using no preservatives, additives or high fructose corn syrup. Our guests get to customize their very own frozen dessert masterpiece, using our 3-step process.

Crestone Bakery

There are several options on the market for gluten-free products like bread, muffins, cookies and pizza crust. We want to provide outstanding versions of those, of course. However, we also want to take on the really difficult gluten-free products like soft pretzels and cinnamon rolls.  

Falafel King Enterprises

For generations, people throughout the Mediterranean world have enjoyed the unique flavors and healthy ingredients of the local cuisine. Now you can experience the delights of Mediterranean cooking in Colorado. 

River and Woods

River and Woods specializes in locally sourced, Colorado comfort food.
