Summer Events in Jerusalem

The summer holidays allow many families to visit and experience Jerusalem in a way they never have.

This summer we still don’t know what to expect. With tourism at a standstill because of Corona, we hope to still have events to share that locals can enjoy. We will keep you posted on upcoming festivals and if they have become virtual or restricted in any way.

Some of our favorite yearly events include…

  • The International Puppet Festival run by the Train Theater – who knew puppet theater could be fun for kids and adults!
  • At the Ein Yael Summer Festival costumed actors will greet you and welcome you to the ancient Roman marketplace. Visitors can walk down the market street and meet different craftsmen as they work.
  • The End of Summer Festival is an interdisciplinary festival, an original production of the Jerusalem Theater featuring a variety of works from the performance and screen arts.
  • Hutzot Hayotzer/ Arts & Crafts fair is a yearly treat. Local artists as well as International visiting artists share their latets creations and you get to enjoy a live Israeli concert each night with incredible food trucks. Not to be missed.

BUT there are so many more special summer activities to look forward to. We will list specific Summer events here as we get closer to the summer.
