Hardlox Festival

Hardlox is back after taking a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hardlox is Asheville's Jewish Food and Heritage Festival. This one-day event returns Sunday, May 1, 2022 in Pack Square in Asheville, North Carolina and runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This event is historically a huge success, with approximately 5,000 people attending each year from across the Blue Ridge region and beyond. The festival has become such an institution the City of Asheville chose to scale back other festivals hosted in Pack Square. Hardlox won its right to continue as a valued, cultural happening in the city.

The Congregation Beth HaTephila of Asheville takes pride in creating a day to celebrate things that are uniquely Jewish and share them with the greater community as an enriching, inclusive, educational and delicious experience. Here is a link to the brochure.

Food and Crafts

The highlight for many attendees is the numerous booths with traditional Jewish foods for sale. These include latkes, macaroons, knish, kugel, klezmer, pastrami, corned beef, kosher hotdogs, matzo ball soup, challah, and much more. I get hungry just thinking about it. Don't forget you can also get lox here usually.

Get your inner Jew and come out to enjoy some fresh food, music, and culture. It's just across the mountains - only an hour or two away!
