For a week in June, the Old City’s dark alleyways will be transformed. Art installations bursting with light, and 3D movies splayed across the city’s ancient walls and buildings will sparkle during the sixth annual Jerusalem Festival of Light, which will take place from June 11-19.

Over 300,000 people visited the light show last summer, crowding the streets in and out of the Old City until midnight.

This year’s festival will feature installations by artists from around the world, including Portugal, France, Germany, the US and Holland.

The festival, which is a joint effort by the Jerusalem Municipality, the Prime Minister’s Office, the semi-public Ariel Company and the Jerusalem Development Authority, costs NIS 7 million to produce, part of which is covered by sponsors.

More information about the festival, including maps, is available in English on the festival’s website:
