The festival, which was held last weekend, was the first ever music festival of its kind to be held in Austin. According to KXAN Austin News, the festival featured a variety of different musical genres that are based on Jewish heritage. Genres included American folk music, jazz, rock, soul, and klezmer and the concerts took place at the Dell Jewish Community Campus on the JCC Community Hall Stage.
In addition to showcasing the Jewish heritage through music, the festival also served as a benefit for Paul and Annie Skelton. Paul, who is a guitarist that has long been involved in the Austin music scene, has been fighting lung cancer. Therefore, 75% of the profits made from the festival are going toward paying for Paul’s medical expenses.
Jewsapalooza was about more than just great music. It also featured a marketplace with vendors selling food, jewelry, drinks and more. Just one more example of the great cultural experience Austin offers to its citizens and its visitors!Posted by Crystal Guthrie at Cantera Real Estate.
