Jewish Food and Culture Fest

2025: We’ll see you on Sunday, May 4

The Jewish Food and Culture Fest is one of B’ham’s favorite outdoor food events. In fact, the event has been declared “the best one-day event the Jewish community has put on in Birmingham. Ever.” Plan now to attend… but be patient because it will take us a while to lovingly prepare all of your favorite foods from recipes that have been passed down for generations: sweet and savory braised brisket, falafel, giant corned beef sandwiches, pickles, babka, pomegranate walnut chicken, tender stuffed cabbage rolls, rugelach, challah, sweet noodle kugel casserole, Israeli salad, couscous, savory potato burekas, matzah ball soup, and mandelbrot. (Note that this year’s full menu is still pending.)

Then when we’re ready, all you have to do is show up, eat, and enjoy.


The Shuk

Back by popular demand, festival goers will once again be able to visit our small-scale recreation of a typical Israeli open-air shuk market. Inside, guests will find samples of Israeli treats alongside dried fruits, nuts, and spices to take home.


While you enjoy your food we will entertain you with the sounds of staff member Drew Tracey’s guitar, headliner Bigfoot County Revue, and a demonstration of the Israeli martial art Krav Maga by local expert Bobby Dixon from Fight Club Fitness.

And of course we’ll have bounce houses for the kids.
