The Romanian-American Freedom Alliance is a non-profit organization established in Colorado in 1990 after the collapse of the Communist regime in Romania. Its mission is both humanitarian and educational. RAFA’s principal goal is to help children and needy families in Romania, as well as to provide medical supplies and equipment to Romanian hospitals. An annual Romanian Festival in downtown Boulder raises the funds for these efforts. In addition, the festival showcases various aspects of Romanian culture to the local population through folk dances, ethnic foods and artifacts.
This year’s Romanian festival will occur on September 13th on Pearl Street. The Festival will begin at 10 am and go until 4pm. Food, deserts and refreshments will be available for the duration of the festival, with proceeds going to charitable activity in Romania. We hope you join us!
Using the money we raised in 2013, RAFA will make donations of over $2,000 to five charitable causes. Click to read more about these wonderful causes!
