Just because it’s winter in Jerusalem, doesn’t mean that the city hibernates in anticipation for the warmer weather.
Every Monday night of February, Jerusalem hosts its annual Shaon Horef Cultural Festival transforming the streets of Jerusalem into a trendy, cultural venue.
Thousands of young locals and visitors, flock to the streets of Jerusalem to enjoy the exciting series of events that speak to their urban lifestyle and desire to enhance the nightlife of the city.
What is Shaon Horef?
It’s a Hebrew play on words. Shaon means noise and horef means winter.
The festival, already in its fifth year, transforms the trendiest parts of the city into a travelling cultural phenomenon. Each Monday, another part of Jerusalem is flooded with events like concerts, dance productions, cooking sessions, and art exhibits. Thousands of people descend upon the streets of Jerusalem, offering exposure to the local, urban vibe and younger talent that call Jerusalem home.
The fifth annual festival will see around 100 free (or almost free) events take over the Shushan district, Azza Street, Nahalat Shiva and Hillel Street
The first two weeks of events is already live.
