CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The 37th Annual Jewish Food Festival returns this weekend and it's back to an in-person event!

In 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival turned into a drive-thru-only event.

"After experiencing what we all kind of went through in 2021 we decided not to have one," said Marcus Lozano, Jewish Food Festival organizer.

Lozano said this year's festival will be much like in years past with live music, a silent auction, a vintage shop, and of course, plenty of food.

Just how good is the food? Lozano said at past events they've made up to 1,600 cabbage rolls and sold out.

The festival is a two-day event held at the Congregation Beth Israel, located at 4402 Saratoga Blvd.

On Saturday, November 12 the festival starts at 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday, November 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
