Annual "Jewish Food Festival" Three-Day Event at PNC Field

The annual Jewish Food Festival in Scranton, PA, will be held Sunday, July 2, through Tuesday, July 4, at PNC Field, home of the Scranton/WB RailRiders.
 
Organized by the Jewish Discovery Center, the free-admission event features Jewish ethnic food, live concerts, kids-zone play area, vendors and crafts. 
 
Concessions will be open from 11:00am-7:00pm on Sunday and Tuesday, and 3:00pm-7:00pm on Monday. 
 
Menu features an assortment of traditional “Jewish favorites” such as corned beef on rye, stuffed cabbage, potato knishes and more. Lovers of Israeli food will enjoy falafel and shawarma made fresh on site as well as the popular “schnitzel” sandwich served on a Kaiser roll – a huge hit! An American-style grill offers 100% all-beef hot-dogs, BBQ ribs, spicy-Moroccan burgers and more, while a dessert station with warm chocolate babka, apple-strudel and funnel-cakes will compliment the celebration of Jewish food. 
 
Singer, songwriter and musician Tali Yess will perform live on Sunday, July 2 at 12:30pm. An up-and-coming recording-artist, Tali has wowed music lovers young and old alike. His music is strongly influenced by his father, Moshe Yess, of Megama fame, and his style and repertoire spans across generations of both Jewish and American music. 
 
On Tuesday, July 4, at 12:30pm, enjoy a high-energy performance by “Simply Tsfat,” live from Israel. Their authentic klezmer & chassidic music uplifts their audience bringing a breath of fresh air from their mystical home-town.
 
Later that evening the RailRiders will be playing Toronto Blue Jays affiliate the Buffalo Bisons. Game begins at 7:05pm followed by a fire-works show!
