Tiburon Jewish Festival
This summer, Tiburon will celebrate a new community and cultural event, the Tiburon Jewish Festival. The festival will highlight the foods, drinks, music, and traditions that Jewish people celebrate and enjoy. The festival will take place in Zelinsky Park, downtown Tiburon, Sunday, July 30 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.
The Festival will feature a Klezmer band known as the “Sonoma Klezmer Band,” which specializes in Jewish Klezmer music. Their songs, which are in both English and Hebrew, bring the message of love and joy in Jewish music.
We will also have the Ferris wheels band highlighting the second half of the festival. The set list features traditional and contemporary Jewish songs, as well as rock classics with Ferris’ Judaized lyrics. That means everything from a double-time “David Melech Israel” to a swing version of “Oseh Shalom.” Their “Eliahu Hanavi” sounds like a Led Zeppelin ballad, while their version of one Beatles classic includes Hebrew verses and a tweaked chorus: “Get back to where we all belong.”
The festival will also include family entertainment with inflatables, games, crafts, vendors, and traditional Jewish foods, including kosher Falafel and Shawarma.
Admission, music, and kids activities will be at no charge. The food will be for sale.
