The 22st Annual Jewish Food Festival takes place under the tent on July 14th at Temple B’nai Israel, 210 Court Street in Laconia, rain or shine. The menu includes traditional Jewish cooking to delicatessen delights to amazing desserts and more!

The Jewish Food Festival in Laconia ranks with the best due to TBI’s talented cooking crew of women and men who have been gathering before Festival Day for planning and recipe selection as well as participating in dozens of cooking and baking sessions in the temple kitchen.  Per Committee Chair Stu Needleman, “Our cooking teams have prepared hundreds of servings of the most delectable foods.  We have purchased, cooked and hand sliced nearly 200 pounds of everyone’s favorite meats and baked dozens of varieties of cakes, cookies and other deserts.  But no matter how much we have, everything goes quickly.  So don’t be late and risk having your favorite item sold out!”  Food Festival attendees from years past attest to the great food and festive atmosphere:

The best day of the year. This is an epic annual event in Laconia; a valuable cultural event for our community.
Absolutely incredible.  Out first time here, but not our last!  Wonderful people! The highlight of our weekend.  We were warmly welcomed, greeted and cared for. We’ll be back next year with our friends!

However, this Festival is about more than food. You will find many assorted treasures at the Nearly New Boutique on the front lawn as well as new Judaica items inside.  Attendees meet old and new friends from the community at large, both Jewish Food connoisseurs and rookies.

Credit cards are accepted.  More information can be found at
