Tourist Tip #306 Hutzot Hayotzer - The Jerusalem Arts and Crafts Festival

The 12-day events features open-air concerts and crafts from hundreds of artisans.

August in Israel generally brings to mind humidity, foreign travel (or wishful thinking about it) and shopping for school supplies. In Jerusalem, though, the month is also associated with one of the largest and liveliest cultural events of the summer season – the International Arts and Crafts Festival, more commonly known as Hutzot Hayotzer.
