Temple Kol Emeth has announced it will host this year’s Noshfest on September 2 and 3. The event will be held in the parking lot of the temple at 1415 Old Canton Road in Marietta.
Noshfest enters its eighth year celebrating Jewish food and culture by showcasing delicacies and activities unique to Jewish heritage and bringing together members of Cobb County’s diverse community in a fun, two-day festival.
Enjoy international foods from more than 40 vendors and browse 50 booths of interesting and unique crafts and goods. Learn about Jewish culture through interactive exhibits, tours of the temple sanctuary, and events for children, including a kids’ zone with inflatables, games, petting zoo and face painting. There will also be special entertainment with dancing and live music, including the Alex Guthrie Band on Sunday at 3pm.
The event will feature its third annual bagel eating contest where participants have five minutes to eat as many bagels as possible for a $500 cash prize.
There will be complimentary family portrait sessions with Courtney Goldman Photography.
Admission for the event is free. Patrons are asked to bring two canned goods per family. All food collected on admission will go to MUST Ministry’s effort to feed the hungry in Atlanta.
