Jewish Food and Culture Fest

Nosh with us Sunday, April 30, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at The J

The Jewish Food and Culture Fest is one of B’ham’s favorite outdoor food events. In fact, last year’s event was declared “the best event the Jewish community has put on in Birmingham. Ever.” Plan now to attend… but be patient because it will take us weeks to prepare all of your favorite foods from recipes that have been passed down for generations: brisket, falafel, corned beef, matzah ball soup, and rugelach (to name just a few).

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

While gathering for the Food Festival we’ll also take the opportunity to celebrate the 75th Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day).


While admission to the festival is free, you’ll need to purchase our delicious food and beverages (this is, after all, a fundraiser!).

Our highly anticipated event fosters an appreciation for Jewish culture and traditions, as well as a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the State of Israel. The festival brings together the Jewish and broader communities to great effect as some 2,000 Jews and non-Jews from across Birmingham gather to enjoy a fun-filled delicious day of great food and entertainment for all ages.

As a sponsor of this event, you and your organization will become a vital part of a long-standing B’ham tradition.
