Hava NaGrilla's Goal

We strive to promote Jewish values and kindle community spirit, while enjoying sumptuous Kosher foods such as brisket sandwiches, lamb, chicken, sausages, hamburgers, hot dogs and vegetarian dishes. We will have 2 BBQ vendors who will cook brisket…smoked ‘low and slow’ to perfection.

Last year we had 4,500 festival visitors, who enjoyed a diversity of craft artisans, live singing groups, a pickle eating contest. Come enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of community spirit, live music, wonderful food and entertainment for all ages Check out the 20 cooking teams competing for the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Kosher BBQ Competition trophy!
