Events planner, Zohe Felici, and crew celebrate another successful Santa Barbara Jewish Festival

Every year in the spring, the Jewish Federation of Santa Barbara produces a community Jewish Festival in Oak Park. This year's event was a success and brought together all types of people from the local community in celebration of Jewish culture and the 66th year of Israel's Independence. The event planner, Zohe, has been involved in the organization of the festival for the last three years.

Some of this year’s festivities included entertainment by:

  • Moshav Band , an internationally acclaimed American/Israeli rock group
  • Kalinka, a popular Santa Barbara-based acoustic folk music group
  • The Jewish Federation’s JCC Teen Comedy Club
  • Lorraine Klein, a singer of Yiddish folk music
  • Flor de Kanela (“Flower of Cinnamon”)

The event took place on May 4th, at Oak Park, in Santa Barbara. This popular park is located near the downtown area and is an ideal venue for medium sized festivals like the Santa Barbara Jewish Festival. It includes a BBQ picnic area, restrooms, kids’ playground, wood stage/dance floor, parking, and plenty of room for vendor booths and other mobile event stages.

"The Jewish Festival is an important and vibrant part of Santa Barbara’s rich history and tradition of ethnic celebrations, and of the Santa Barbara Jewish community itself. It brings to the community a wide variety of entertainment to two stages, food, vendors, and information, and it includes a variety of music: ethnic and local, modern and ancient, instrumental and vocal." – www.jewishsantabarbara.org
