Tourist Tip #284 / Jaffa's Mini-festival

The event takes place Thursdays at the port, where audiences can stroll among some 40 booths showcasing video art, design and other artsy creations.

The Jaffa Port has turned into something of a hot spot in recent years, thanks to a massive facelift that has brought new cafes, bars and restaurants to the area, along with special one-off or seasonal activities. These events include shoe fairs, art exhibits, dance performances, food fests and more.

This summer, a new multidisciplinary project called "Platform" comes to the port to provide – you guessed it – a platform for designers, artists, musicians and other creative types to strut their stuff.

The mini-festival takes place along the port's eastern promenade, where audiences can stroll among some 40 booths showcasing video art, design and other artsy creations. There's also a stage for live performances and music gigs, a bar on site and a boutique Israeli beer booth.

The event takes place every Thursday in July and August from 6 P.M. to 11 P.M. The best part – aside from the cool seaside breeze? Admission is free.
