The annual outdoor International Jerusalem Arts and Crafts Fair, called Hutzot Hayotzer is certainly one of Jerusalem’s highlights of the summer if not the entire year. The fair is a great place to purchase art and functionally designed items. Or at the very least, it is inspiring to see all the creativity emerging from Israel and countries around the world. The Hutzot Hayotzer Festival 2015 features concerts by Israeli musicians almost every night of the week.
The festival includes nightly live concerts and dance performances by popular Israeli artists, as well as many food stands and workshops scheduled throughout.
