The JCC offers festivals throughout the year, including the Jewbilee day of learning in January, the Silicon Valley Jewish Music Festival in June, and the Menorahs & Miracles Hanukkah celebration at the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose in December.

Silicon Valley Jewish Music Festival

Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 2:00-7:00pm

Enjoy live music, food, and family activities at this annual festival on the JCC field. We’ll have a beach theme this year. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on.

This year’s performers include Jewish bluegrass band Nefesh Mountain, Israeli cover band The Peatot, and Book of J. New this year, we’ll also have a second stage with local community performers including the Valley’s Song Choir (Shir HaEmek), the Yiddish Choristers of Congregation Etz Chayim, the Israel Scouts’ Caravalley singers, and others.

We’ll also have food vendors and a wine & beer garden. Outdoor food vendors include Casablanca Moroccan Food, Hot Dogs and Burgers from the House of Bagels cafe, JJ Magoo’s Pizza, Israeli House, Lemonade, Ice Cream, Popsicles. We recommend bringing along some cash for food, as most food vendors don’t accept credit cards.

Family activities include sand and water play for kids, a mechanical surfboard, beach balls, beach games, arts and crafts, science experiments, decorate your own flip flops, make your own musical instrument, tie-dye shirts, bubbles, an Israeli shuk (market), and more. Come dressed in beachwear and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

Tickets are $8-$15. Kids 12 and under get in free.
