Taste of Jewish Culture Street Fair This Sunday

It’s that delicious time of the year again…

This Sunday June 26th marks the third annual Workmen’s Circle Taste of Jewish Culture Street Fair. From 11 a.m.–6 p.m. on Avenue of the Americas between 48th and 49th streets, the event will feature NYC’s top Jewish food vendors including The Gefilteria with OneTable and Black Seed Bagels. Other famous vendors include Breads Bakery, Brooklyn Seltzer Boys, Brooklyn Sesame,Taïm, Mile End Delicatessen, Seed + Mill and many more.

The event will be hosted by a dynamic duo, comedians Tracy Soren and Jessie Jolles, who will be leading trivia games like “So You Think You’re Jewish.” Activities and craft booths will provide additional entertainment for all ages. On the main stage, Klezmer musicians Howard Leshaw and the Klezmer Swing Orchestra will perform, while local celebrities and audience members will be dancing in the street.

To celebrate New York City PrideFest, which is also this Sunday, Orwasher’s Bakery will be giving out free rainbow cookies.

Free cookies? I’m in!
