Boulder Dandelion Festival, April 23

One of our favorite festivals is coming back to Boulder on April 23.

Citizens for Pesticide Reform, a branch of the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center, has organized the Dandelion Festival to celebrate the healthful and environmental benefits of the much-maligned dandelion.

The Festival features music, experts speaking about the environment (and the use of pesticides in Boulder County) and the first annual Dandelion Cook-Off.

HEAR Brigitte Mars speak about the wonders of the Wild, Edible and Medicinal Plants of Boulder. TASTE a variety of dandelion delights. LEARN about the latest techniques in backyard gardening and how to make your lawn organic. HAVE your face painted and create dandelion crowns. VOTE for your favorite dandelion recipe as Boulder chefs battle in the Dandelion Cook-Off. Join the Boulder community in supporting local vendors who provide safe and healthy products.

The Dandelion Festival is FREE and takes place at the Boulder Bandshell (Broadway and Canyon) from 9am-4pm.

Personally, we're hoping there's a sampling of Dandelion Wine!
