Embrace the spirit of summer at Pomella's Summerfest, every Thursday in August!


Join us for a joyous community gathering perfect for family and friends. Delight in a new local food pop-up each week from 4-8 PM and sway to the rhythms of live Klezmer, Eastern European, and Middle Eastern music from 5:30-7:30 PM.


Mr. Softee!!  Do they even need an introduction???  The classic East Coast ice cream institution now has trucks in the Bay Area!  If you want some of this, get here early!!!


The Gonifs Klezmer Band, founded in 1996, includes bassist Richard Saunders, accordionist/singer Jeanette Lewicki, & clarinetist/composer Sheldon Brown. Their solid skills and soulful tunes thrill music-lovers in castles, barns, concert halls, subways, peace marches around the world. The gonifs are equally fluent in Yiddish song, French musette, Brazilian rumba, Argentine tango, jazz, & wild wedding music from all over.
