Tellerpalooza

What is Tellerpalooza?
Started in 2004 by music-loving Teller parents, the event has grown into this east Denver elementary school’s biggest fundraiser. 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.
 
The event will be presided over by the always entertaining and unpredictable master of ceremonies, Zach Hochstadt. Early in the evening, the stage features the Teller DPS (Denver Public Schools) student band. Later, kids head home to babysitters; parents and local fans stay into the night. Tellerpalooza 2018 is about much more than music, with food trucks, a bake sale, a merchandise market with Tellerpalooza tees and goodies from performing bands, games, and other surprises. Basically, come and plan to HAVE FUN. Doors open at 3:30p, and the music starts soon thereafter.
 
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 $25,000 to fund academic programs as well as faculty positions at Teller Elementary.
 
This year’s lineup includes Teller Beginning Band, Tiger Voices and Violins, Teller Advanced and Jazz Bands, and these local bands:
  • Alpha Schoolmarm Orchestra
  • Kissing Party
  • Old School Hype
  • Sierra Hotel
  • The Beeves

Tellerpalooza Wall of Wine
Need we say more? It’s a fixture of Tellerpalooza, and we need your help to make it a success!
We need YOU to donate wine, and local stores have offered to make that easier! Capitol Heights Pharmacy is giving 20% off all wine purchases and Marczyks on 17th St is giving 10% off 3, 15% off 6 and 20% off 12 bottles between now and May 11th –just mention Teller or Tellerpalooza. Both stores will also hold your wine for the Wall of Wine people to pick up! So buy a case, keep some for yourself (we won’t tell!) and donate the rest to Wall of Wine. Want to donate other bottles? Drop them off on the front porch of the Baptiste residence – 1427 Garfield St (conveniently located on your way to school or Sprouts!). Please do not bring Wine to Teller.
