Boulder Jewish Festival Scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 2024

Save the date for Sunday, June 9, 2024 for the Boulder Jewish Festival on the Pearl Street Mall!  The Boulder Jewish Festival is the longest-running cultural festival in Boulder, only interrupted in 2020 – 2021 by COVID. The Festival, planned by a volunteer committee and led by Joy Alice Eisenhauer; Arts, Culture, and Education (ACE) Director of the Boulder JCC, will feature Jewish music, artists, food, and local community organizations. 

“This festival is more important than ever,” said Eisenhauer. “Our festival can play a pivotal role in fostering unity, understanding, and appreciating Jewish culture. The Pearl Street Mall always has many visitors who find the festival as a great opportunity to learn about Jewish culture and ask questions in a safe space.”  

The Boulder Jewish Festival creates the setting for locals to connect with organizations and the Jewish community they are looking to build, with the courthouse lawn hosting up to 25 different organizations from Boulder County and beyond.  

The festival also serves as a vibrant celebration of Jewish heritage, showcasing unique Jewish music, Jewish artists, and delicious cuisines; providing a platform for conversation, breaking down barriers, and promoting cross-cultural dialogue. 

The committee is currently being formed. Applications for food vendors, artists, and organizations will be available soon. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer or a presenter, please contact Joy Alice Eisenhauer at joy.eisenhauer@boulderjcc.org. We look forward to seeing you this June!
