Ready for a nosh?? ‘Cuz we’re back, baby!

While gathering for the Food Festival we’ll also take the opportunity to celebrate the 74th Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) with themed activities and swag bags.

The Jewish Food and Culture Fest is one of B’ham’s favorite outdoor food events. And although we’ve been out of commission since 2019 (thanks, pandemic!)… we’re excited to relaunch this year. But be patient because it will take us weeks to prepare all of your favorite foods from recipes 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.

Entertainment

You can also look forward to perusing displays by local organizations plus local vendors showing their wares.

This event is made possible by the Unrestricted Fund at The Birmingham Jewish Foundation and the support of The Birmingham Jewish Federation. While admission to the festival is free, you’ll need to purchase our delicious food and beverages (this is, after all, a fundraiser!).
