We Heard you!

Starting January 10th, 2016, you can pre-pay your order for pastrami and corned beef plates online. That’s right! We’ll guarantee your freshly made sandwich will be available between 10:30 and 4 PM on the day of the Festival as long as you pre-pay online before March 10th, 2016.

Pre-Pay is now closed

What's On The Menu?

A food lover's dream!  Pastrami will be featured on the mouth-watering menu along with corned beef, knishes, stuffed cabbage, matzo ball soup, kosher hot dogs, falafel plates, and other traditional Jewish style eats –– but make sure to save room for New York cheesecake, irresistible strudel, rugelah, noodle kugel, and other sweet treats in the wildly popular Bakery Shop, where of course you'll also find bagels, shmear, lox and more! You'll be going back for seconds (and thirds), too, because festival organizers have re-designed all the food and dining areas for faster-than-ever service!

Pre-Pay is now closed

 For The 21-And-Over Crowd

The kosher wine sale returns! You definitely don't have to be Jewish to enjoy kosher wines.  Our 2016 wine shop will be open for business during festival hours (10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.), so be sure to stop in and buy a few bottles to take home for whatever holiday tradition your family observes.
