Guilford, CT—The 13th annual Shoreline Jewish Festival will take place Sunday, August 5 from 12-5 PM on the Guilford Green. The festival features various styles of Jewish music, traditional and Israeli fair food (all kosher), an art and book sale, and children’s crafts and activities. This year’s musical lineup features East Rock Klezmer, White Shabbos, and Rocky and the Goldstein.

Klazz-Ma-Tazz plays a rich musical mix of blues and jazz, bringing to life the authentic "old-world" Jewish sound of clarinet, accordion, and fiddle. Their music laughs and cries, dances and dives to reach the heart and soul of the audience. Jewish culture, prayer and long history find expression in the timeless melodies of local group.

White Shabbos presents a unique combo of Jewish/biblical lyrics and bluegrass, rockabilly music. For the young—and the young at heart—White Shabbos leads an interactive sing-along show that is guaranteed to get everyone up on their feet and dancing.

Rocky and the Goldstein is a Brooklyn-based band that blends age-old chassidic melodies with American folk rock. Their performance is a heartwarming and soulful experience that weaves together original song and masterful storytelling.

Artists and artisans will be selling a variety of Judaica, jewelry, clothing and art work. Books, videos and games of Jewish interest for both children and adults will be available for sale. Festival-goers can choose from a variety of (kosher) fair favorites, including hamburgers, hot dogs, falafel (an Israeli fried chickpea specialty), schwarma grilled chicken, potato knishes, homemade doughnuts, cotton candy, sno cones, and more.

Children will enjoy an inflatable slide, obstacle course and bouncers. They can also try their hand at a variety of Jewish-themed arts & crafts projects.
