Jerusalem Light Festival

Over the years, the Jerusalem Light Festival has become known as one of the most impressive and enjoyable events that take place in the capital every summer. Every night during the festival, amazing modern light art installations illuminate the walls and sites inside and around the Old City.

The festival, which has already begun and will continue until July 4, is a celebration of spreading the light, overcoming obstacles and bringing people together. A record-breaking number of light artists from overseas will be participating in the 11th International Light Festival in Jerusalem, hailing from India, the US, Brazil, Serbia and many other locales around the world. Entrance to all the exhibits is, of course, free of charge.

Just as Israelis increasingly enjoy traveling abroad during Christmas time to enjoy traditional light festivals, the number of Israelis and foreign tourists flocking to Jerusalem’s Light Festival is also steadily growing each year.

During the festival nights, the streets and alleyways of the Old City are packed with people enjoying the beautiful creations. VJs (Visual Jockeys) take their activity outdoors and put on a lively multisensory party for all the festival participants to enjoy.
