Story

What is the KlezKolorado Festival?

KlezKolorado is a weekend-long Klezmer Festival at the JCC Ranch Camp that centers on local and national Klezmer acts, Yiddish culture, workshops, and Colorado’s Jewish community. We want to highlight the burgeoning Klezmer revival in Denver, Boulder, and beyond, and create a new space for Yiddishists to gather and celebrate our culture.

When and where will the Festival be held?

May 3-5, 2024

The festival will be held at the JCC’s beautiful Ranch Camp, situated conveniently between Denver and Colorado Springs. Guests who are attending for the full weekend will be provided with cabin-style accommodations, meals and snacks (including a special Shabbos dinner), and full access to all activities throughout the weekend.

Why is Klezmer culture important?

For generations, Klezmer music and Yiddish Culture have created a space where both Jews and non-Jews can find a sense of identity that is affirming, deeply committed to social justice, and asks important questions about what it means to be connected to Jewish Culture. 

Why should I give to support the festival?

KlezKolorado offers an exciting and unique experience that celebrates Jewish representation and expression.

Please give generously so that we can bring the very best Klezmer talent and experience to all attendees. Sponsorships are available. Please contact Benjamin Sweet at benjaminsweet6@gmail.com for more information about sponsorships.
