Tel Aviv is a city which believes in celebrating life with a vigor that keeps the city buzzing all through the year. Life in Tel Aviv is marked by a regular chronology of events as the city celebrates each one with an equal zest. The Festivals and Events in Tel Aviv are numerous in the city’s cultural calendar as each month brings with it some new occasion for the people to celebrate. The events held in Tel Aviv manifest a delightful diversity as the city observes each occasion in a different style, thus promising a variety of experience to the ones in the city. While some festivals reflect a religious flavor, some others are devoted to the rich culture which marks Israel.
Jaffa is a part of the city which still retains an ethnicity, and the events observed here naturally bear a distinct old world feel. Jaffa Nights, one of the major events in Jaffa, is also no exception as it marvels its guests with an exciting array of cultural performances. The event is an annual occurrence in the southern part of Tel Aviv. Numerous locals and tourists troop in to Jaffa each year in August to witness the marvelous variety of performance arts. Jaffa Nights spans a total of four days, during which the city comes to life with thousands of visitors and numerous stages set up along the streets. The quaint alleys of Jaffa throb with a different fervor as the event draws people of all age and culture. Over seventy different performances in music, street plays and dance cover the Jaffa Nights to give the visitors a taste of the traditional culture, as well as the new trends in the art forms.

Jaffa Nights bears a close resemblance to the traditional Israeli festivals as it wears a similar richness and spirit. The event however, is more commercialized and tempered to appeal to every taste. As excellent plays and dances are staged on the makeshift platforms along the streets, the visitors at Jaffa Nights bask in a different experience altogether. The event is a haven for a music lover as one can relish here a delightful array of jazz, rock classical or country tunes. The event allows everyone to share the excitement as the performances are put up openly along the streets of Jaffa, making the region a miniature Israel’s cultural tapestry.
