Our annual Jewish Deli Fest is the major fundraising event for The Jewish Council of Lake Norman, a 501(c)(3) corporation affiliated with the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte. Our mission is to provide programs that impact and strengthen the community through a deeper appreciation of Jewish culture. Deli Fest is always well attended. With an increasing population in the area, families are moving in for new job opportunities and in many cases to be closer to their children and grandchildren. We provide an excellent marketing opportunity for your business and encourage you to set up a table, provide promotional materials and meet new potential customers. Email [email protected] for additional information.

Donate any amount to our annual fundraising event to qualify as a friend of the festival. Go to the JCLKN tent on the day of the event to see your name on our “Special Friends” poster.  Have your name printed in Hebrew while you’re there. Lots of information available. Simply click here to make your donation today.
