Rock Concert Fundraiser (all ages) — Saturday, May 2, 2020 (4p-11p)
Started in 2004 by music-loving Teller parents, the event has grown into one of this east Denver elementary school’s biggest fundraisers. In 2014, we returned to the iconic Bluebird Theater, located right in the Teller neighborhood! But this event is not your typical school fundraiser. Don’t expect kid music. Expect everything under the sun music. And while, yes, kids are welcome – Tellerpalooza shows what makes Teller special. A community that enjoys a great time, great music, and each other.
Early in the evening, the stage features the Teller Elementary student bands, violins, and voices. Later, kids head home to babysitters, and parents and local fans stay into the night. Tellerpalooza 2020 is about much more than music, with food trucks, a bake sale, a merch booth with Tellerpalooza tees and goodies from performing bands, games, and other surprises. Basically, come and plan to HAVE FUN. Doors open at 4:00pm, and the music starts soon thereafter.
Launched in 2003, Tellerpalooza serves as a vital funding lifeline for Teller Elementary, and it wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of Denver’s music community, members of which donate their time and talents for the event. Tellerpalooza lets us show off how much we cherish the arts and music at our school and in our community. We’re genuinely grateful to the musicians, to the Bluebird Theater, and to our event sponsors for supporting us when we really need it.
Last year, some 800 people attended Tellerpalooza, helping raise more than $20,000 to fund academic programs positions at Teller Elementary.
