Master of Ceremonies

Bruce Baumann

We are Change Colorado
Part motivational speaker. Part grassroots mobilizer. 100% activist who is all about carrying the world to a better place. Bruce Baumann from We are Change Colorado will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the 2016 Green Beer Fest. Well-known in Colorado’s activism and non profit communities, Bruce will be enlightening, engaging and unequivocally passionate in the messages and moments he will share during these 2 days of activism.  



As a grassroots volunteer led event, we have to dig deep inside to compete with larger, more established festivals with bigger operating budgets. In order to accomplish this, we leverage our greatest organizational asset – AWESOME PEOPLE!

Below you’ll find some of the fun things happening this year’s festival, thanks to these cosmic rainbow light filled beings we are blessed to know.

Rules & Safety

The Green Beer Fest is a volunteer run event. After months of planning, meetings, making cold calls and working nights and weekends our team is looking forward to having fun at the event as much as you are!

Activists, divers, makers and hula hoop shakers make up our eclectic, dance happy, free-spirited audience.

To have a great time at the festival we have the following rules in place for your safety and the safety of others:

  • Be cool. Per city permitting, Boulder Marshals will be on-site to help manage security and crowd flow. But after working a CU home game, let’s try not to work them too hard!
  • Beer must stay inside the fenced area. Our fenced area will wrap around the borders of the Bandshell bleachers. If you have a beer (or alcohol) you must consume it inside the fenced area per City of Boulder requirements.
  • Servers have the right to refuse alcohol. If you have gone past the point of cray-cray, our servers have the right to refuse serving you beer. You will not be refunded your money and asked to leave the event. So please consume alcohol responsibly and try to stay cool.
  • Wrist bands are required for all people inside the fenced area who are 21+.
  • No parking or vehicles are permitted on the Bandshell lawn/grass.

Food & Beverages

Food and non alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase from select Boulder County licensed food trucks and food vendors. A list of specific vendors and their offerings will be named prior to the date of the festival.


The Boulder Bandshell is located in downtown Boulder at the intersection of Broadway and Canyon. Extremely limited meter parking is available on the street. When possible we encourage attendees to ride a bike, take public transportation or commute to the event with friends.

Vendors and musicians please coordinate with your designated crew leader for load-in and load-out instructions.


The GreenBeerFest is a 2 day festival, however, it is not an overnight festival.

Attendees and vendors looking to attend (or work) the festival both days should seek overnight accommodations at a hotel in the surrounding downtown Boulder neighborhood.
