Boulder Jewish Festival 2024: A Delightful Day with 15,000 Attendees and Vibrant Entertainment

According to two on-site experts, around 15,000 people visited the 28th Boulder Jewish Festival on Sunday, and — almost as a “make-up” for 2023’s deluge — the weather was delightful. Twenty-seven organizations, including roughly ten first-timers, met the crowd on the Courthouse Lawn, while six musical acts entertained on the Pearl St. Mall. Seven artists and five food purveyors rounded out the exhibitors on the Mall and 14th Street. (You can read all about the Festival participants at the Boulder JCC’s new Festival page here.)

The weekly “Run for Their Lives” march for the Israeli hostages ended in front of the Information Booth and celebrated the recent rescue of four hostages the day before the Festival:
