From their web site:

The International Arts and Crafts Festival, Jerusalem is held at the Khutsot Hayotser Arts and Crafts Center, Mitchell Gardens and the Merrill Hassenfeld Amphitheater in the Sultan’s Pool, opposite the Tower of David at the foot of the Old City Walls. This year the Festival is celebrating 38 years of the cultural event that has become a tradition in Jerusalem and the main tourist and artistic attraction of the summer season.

The Festival is open every evening (except Fridays) from 18:00 – 23:00

  1. In previous years, a yerushalmi card offered a discount. Do you know if this will be the case again this year?

    The CORRECT prices are here:

    You should correct the Janglo article as well. The senior discount and the family discounts have nothing to do with the Yerushalmi (Jerusalem Resident) card….

    • Thanks for the tip! There is a difference in the prices listed in English and Hebrew.

      Adult 60 NIS
      Teen, Student, Soldier, Senior, Police Officer 50 NIS
      Groups and Committees 50 NIS
      Senior with Yerushalmi card 50 NIS
      Summer Campaign 50 NIS
      Child- age 5 to 12 35 NIS
      Family pass with a child- Yerushalmi card 135 NIS
      Family pass with 2 children- Yerushalmi card 150 NIS
      Family pass with 3 or more children- Yerushalmi card 170 NIS
      Family pass with 3 or more children 190 NIS

      60 מבוגר
      50 ש”ח נוער , סטודנט, חייל, גימלאי, שוטר
      50 ש”ח קבוצתי- ועדים
      50 ש”ח מבוגר- כרטיס תושב ירושלמי
      50 ש”ח קמפיין קיץ
      35 ש”ח ילדים (מגיל 5 עד 12)
      135 ש”ח משפחתי – זוג +1 – ירושלמי
      150 ש”ח משפחתי – זוג + 2 – ירושלמי
      170 ש”ח משפחתי – זוג +3 ילדים ומעלה- ירושלמי
      190 ש”ח משפחתי – זוג +3 ילדים ומעלה

      In both English and Hebrew there are discounts for families with the Yerushalmi card but I quoted the wrong price for a family with three children- it is 170 shekels and not 190 shekels. In English a Yerushalmi “senior” pays 50 shekels and in Hebrew a Yerushalmi “adult” pays 50 shekels.

      If you fall into one of these categories, check the price before you go.

    This may not be rellevant to most olym, but active IDF reserve soldiers have a disount club calld Behatsdaa, that is giving out tickets for 38 NIS. And you can buy tickets for your whole family, not just yourself.
