| The Jerusalem Arts Festival 2017|
|The 16th Jerusalem Arts Festival takes off – a week of exhilarating festivities, with hundreds of artistes, singers, dancers and dozens of shows.|
The Jerusalem Arts Festival will take place between 28/3 - 4/4
The festival has been produced by the Culture and Arts Department of the Jerusalem Municipality since 2002.
The festival has become a tradition and a pivotal event in the cultural life of the city, aiming to promote, to nurture and to encourage the various creative fields and present the general public with unique and quality performances at prices everyone can afford.
Shows featuring dance, theatre, music and song presenting the finest amateur and semi-professional groups will be held in the halls of the Jerusalem Theatre, the YMCA Hall, at Shimshon Center – Beit Shmuel, the Gerard Bechar Center, Khan Theatre and other sites in the city.
In keeping with tradition, the festival will include ''artistic morsels'' each evening – in the lobby of the Jerusalem Theatre. A choice of evening performances, open to the general public free of charge, will be held before and after the shows.
