Boulder Weekend Events
CORRECTION: The Boulder Jewish Festival is SUNDAY, JUNE 7, and not Saturday the 6th, as previously reported.
It’s nearly officially summer, but don’t leave your umbrellas at home just yet. This weekend will be one for the books, as Boulder does not merely offer just a beautiful landscape. Boulder is also a place where one can expand their mind and spirit. Take this weekend to learn something new and share it with others!
Saturday, June 6
Come and enjoy the one-day Boulder Jewish Festival, where all things Jewish will be celebrated!
There will be Jewish food, live entertainment, art and Judaica (Jewish items for purchase), as well as activities for all to enjoy. I plan on being there so come and say hello to your AboutBoulder columnist!
Location: Pearl Street Mall and Courthouse Lawn, Boulder.
The great thing about Saturday is the worldly adventure continues with Zuruna, Music of Israel and Palestine. Zuruna is a Denver-based music ensemble that produces and performs traditional Middle-Eastern Music, with their lead vocalist, Katrin Payan, hailing from Israel. This event is meant to bring the community together through the music of other cultures and to spread peace.
This is the first of a concert series meant to raise funds in order to restore the almost 100-year old Crescent Grange building.
Cost: For Crescent Grange Members: $12 advance, $20 at door (if available); all other attendees $25
Location: Crescent Grange, Broomfield.
Sunday, June 7
Leslie C. Lewis will be leading the informative Edible Weeds and Wild Medicinals class, where she will use her experience as a certified clinical herbalist to teach you how to take advantage of the weeds that are usually a nuisance, and put them to good use.
Lewis is also a flower essence practitioner and will show the best ways to forage for and prepare the wild plants that have the best healing properties fr you to use at home. As someone who has successfully made natural bug spray from plant and oil ingredients, I know this is not one you will want to miss for summer!
Location: Harlequin’s Gardens, Boulder.
