Noshfest: More Than Just Good Eats
Temple Kol Emeth hosts another year of fun food, family time and live entertainment.
More than 5,000 people came for a bite and a nibble at Temple Kol Emeth’s eighth-annual Noshfest over the Labor Day weekend.
The two-day event featured 55 vendors and included samples of Jewish and ethnic foods, crafts, gifts, interactive exhibits, a kids’ zone with inflatables, games, face painting and a petting zoo along with dancing and entertainment.
The Alex Guthrie Band performed on Sunday, following a Bagel Eating Contest that pitted six contestants against each other in a battle of carb-loading and expanding waistlines. Brandon Clark, “Da Garbage Disposal,” a professional eater from Chicago, won the contest by snarfing down seven bagels in five minutes. He beat the previous record of five bagels.
Noshfest celebrates Jewish food and culture by showcasing delicacies and activities unique to the Jewish heritage. The event brings together members of Cobb County’s diverse community for the two-day festival in the parking lot of the Marietta synagogue, which also included a tour of its sanctuary for anyone interested.
