Israel's grandest summer festival, Chutzot Hayotzer has been delighting Jerusalemites for more than 30 years. An outstanding array of paintings, prints, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, Judaica, gadgets, woodworking, and more, all for sale, make the festival (whose name loosely translates to "The Creator's Fair") a pivotal event for local and international artists alike. There is an Israeli pavilion featuring the work of Israeli artists, as well as an international pavilion, where artists from thirty two countries around the world display and sell their arts, crafts and wares.
In addition to the local and international arts and crafts on offer, the festival includes an international food court, featuring ethnic dishes from across the globe, as well as plenty of live musical entertainment including performances by Israeli superstars (lineup below) and children's activities.
The Festival is open every evening (except Fridays) from 18:00 - 23:00 and Saturday from one hour after the end of the Shabat until midnight.
