Israel Tourism

Hanging around Jerusalem during your annual Israel Tour? Well you better be, only for the sake of the International Arts and Crafts Festival that’s about to open August 15.

This is one event you can’t miss. It’s a 30 year old tradition and one of Israel’s most important events, featuring arts and crafts merchants and exhibitions, live musical performances by the best Israeli rock and pop artists and plenty of entertainment opportunities for the entire family.

Israeli and international artisans are gathered to celebrate and present their unique work all over the city. The Israeli Pavilion provides a stage for more than 150 local painters, sculptors and jewelers showcasing their creations – from traditional paintings, textiles, ceramics, clothing, cosmetics and anything you can possibly imagine.

The International Pavilion brings together artists and artisans from all over the world, featuring unique works of art in numerous booths and stands along the lovely streets of Jerusalem.

Visitors can also enjoy the festival’s international food fairs, workshops, and streets artists that will be constantly entertaining the large crowds.

And if you’re not in the mood for shopping, try to catch one of the live music shows on the festival’s main stage. Everyone will be there, not joking, the list is truly amazing: Gidi Gov, Yudit Ravitz, Shlomi Shabat, Ha’yehudim, Hada Nachash, Mosh Ben Ari, Ehud Banai, Gali Atari and Ivri Lider, to name just a few. If you don’t know them – it’s time to look’em up.

The International Arts and Crafts Fair is held at the height of the Israel tourism season all around Jerusalem, but mainly at Hutzot Hayotzer Arts and Crafts Center, Tower of David and the Sultan’s Pool, starting August 15 till the 27th, every night till midnight.

    It’s a great event, totally agree with this recommendation.
    And if you visit Jerusalem, you should also take an hour or two and visit the Dead sea, it’s a must see place every time you’re in the area.

      it does take a fair amount of work but anyone can do it.

      Just make sure you have the time and passion to do it.

      I would recommend wordpress. it’s a very popular blog software and free (unless you purchase services from them)

      Best of luck !
