For the third consecutive year, three prominent local organizations are joining forces to host the vibrant street fair following the Lag B’Omer Parade in Crown Heights. MASK (Mothers and Fathers Aligned Saving Kids) and IDCC (Interborough Developmental & Consultation Center) have announced their continued partnership with NCFJE (National Committee for the Promotion of Jewish Education) in sponsoring this beloved community event, L’zeicher Nishmas Ita bas Chanoch Aron.

The Lag B’Omer parade and street fair have become beloved traditions, drawing crowds from all over the world to celebrate the joyful holiday. The parade, which commemorates the life of famed Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, features colorful floats, lively music and marching children carrying banners with symbols and slogans of Jewish pride.

Immediately after the parade, the streets come alive with the Lag B’Omer street fair, which this year promises to be bigger than ever before, with bigger attractions like a Ferris wheel. The fair offers a variety of attractions, shows and activities for all ages. Thanks to the generous sponsors, the entire event is free for everyone.

“We are pleased to once again work with our partners at IDCC and NCFJE to bring this wonderful celebration to our community,” said Ms. Ruchama Clapman, director of MASK. “The Lag B’Omer Street Fair is a highlight of the year and brings people together in a spirit of unity and joy.”

The Lag B’Omer parade and street fair will take place on Sunday, May 26, with the parade starting at 11 a.m. and the fair starting at 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The fair will be held on Lefferts Ave and Brooklyn Ave, with shows in the Beis Rivkah hall.

Participants are encouraged to arrive early to secure their spot along the parade route and enjoy the full day of festivities. Reserve your place now or register a group via
