The Jerusalem International Arts and Crafts Festival is an annual event at the Sultan's Pool which is meant as a showcase for the wares of local and international artisans. It is open every evening for two weeks in August. It reminded me more of a state fair (minus rides and animals) than an arts and crafts festival. One pavillion is devoted to Israeli artists and one pavillion is devoted to artists from abroad. There is a large food court between the two pavillions. In addition, every night there are various shows for the children and musical performances for the entire family. It is a lovely way to spend an evening in Jerusalem with the whole family.
