About Festo Festo


Festo is a monthly Klezmer and Balkan music concert and community jam session. Each gathering includes short performances by the Festo Festo house bands [Gora Gora Orkestar and Denver Klezmer All-Stars], a performance by a special guest band or dance troupe, and a jam session in which all attendees are welcome to participate. 

When and where? 

Usually the last Thursday of every month from 7 to 9:30pm at the Mercury Cafe, 2199 California St. Denver CO 80205. Festo is usually in the Mercury’s Jungle Room, but sometimes it is upstairs in the Ballroom. 


We, the organizers, want to celebrate our own cultures, learn about the cultures of others through music and dance, and help these cultures flourish and grow in Denver. We want to inspire new sounds through intercultural collaboration. We want to strengthen community relationships and we want to experience unbridled joy with you! 

Do I need tickets? 

This event relies on donations. Attendees are not required to purchase tickets, but we ask for donations for $10-20 in cash or by sending money via venmo to @Festo-Festo
