WHAT IS A COMMUNITY PARTNER?

Community Partners are non-profit organizations that may provide information about their services and activities, but may NOT sell a product at the event. Community Partners may participate in the Walk from 9:30am-10:30am, but must staff their booths from 10:30am-1:00pm.

WHAT DOES A COMMUNITY PARTNER PROVIDE?

Community Partners should bring marketing materials about their organization and any other items you wish to hand out or display at your table. You will receive a small table sign, but we encourage you to provide additional signage. In addition, we strongly encourage providing a hands-on activity for kids that focuses on Israel or Jewish Community. Please indicate on the sign up form if you will be providing an activity and if so, what the activity will be.

WHAT SHOULD THE HANDS-ON KIDS’ ACTIVITY INCLUDE?

All kid’s activities should have a focus on Israel or Jewish Community. Community Partners are responsible for bringing all of the supplies required for their activity. JEWISHcolorado is happy to offer resources and provide ideas for kid’s activities  through our Programming Department. If you would like additional support in developing your activity, please email Events@JEWISHcolorado.org. See below for a list of activity ideas!

WHERE WILL MY TABLE BE LOCATED?

Community Partners that offer a hands-on activity for kids will be located in the family festival area. This will offer the highest amount of foot traffic and provides community partners the greatest opportunity to engage with adults while their children are participating in the activity provided. Any Community Partner that DOES NOT provide an activity will be located in a separate Community Resource section. All Community Partners must submit the details of their hands-on activity by April 22 to ensure a booth in the Festival.

CAN I HAND OUT FOOD?

Because of permitting and health code requirements, Community Partners may NOT hand out any food at the
event. Food and beverages will be available for attendees to purchase from licensed vendors.

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Community Partners must arrive between 8:30am-9:00am to set up their table. All tables must be completely
set up by 10:00am. Please DO NOT arrive prior to 8:30am.

WHEN DOES THE EVENT CONCLUDE?

The event concludes at 1:00pm. Community Partners may not break down their tables until this time.
