NOSH FEST HISTORY

Nosh Fest is the premier Food Festival in South Florida. It was created by members of Temple Beth Emet in 2009 for the primary purpose of providing food to those in need, given unprecedented levels of unemployment and economic distress throughout Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties. The event’s organizers also wanted to share Jewish cuisine and culture with our neighbors, and to have fun doing so.

More than one thousand people attended the 1st Annual Nosh Fest in December, 2009. In previous years, both attendance and the amount of food collected was more than double that of the original year. This year our admission has changed. Entry is $10 per adult plus 5 canned goods or $15 without canned goods. Children 3 and older are $5 plus 5 canned goods or $10 without canned goods. Because the need is greater than ever, we are requesting each attendee to donate five non-perishable items of food cans of food.

Attendees can “Nosh” [taste] different cuisines and enjoy FREE bite sized tastes from local restaurants and food vendors. 

Entertainment options in the past have included a Food Network style cooking competition, cooking demonstrations by local chefs and cooking professionals, musical performances, and plenty of children’s activities.

Nosh Fest celebrate it's 10th year on November 3, 2019!
