Midrachov Street Festival

The Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Lion and the City of Jerusalem invite locals and guests to enjoy free street theater and entertainment in town during the summer.

Each evening different streets will be closed to traffic and will become pedestrian malls with outdoor entertainment. All of the performers are local Yerushalmim.

Restaurants have been given special permission to set up their tables outside so guests can enjoy some good food and entertainment while maintaining social distancing.
