Festival 69 Online – A Virtual Retrospective Journey

Because our 69th Israel Folk Dance Festival and Festival of the Arts could not take place as planned, we are happy to fire up our time machine and take you on a virtual journey through many years of Israel Folk Dance Festivals. Our journey begins at the at the beginning of this century with the milestone Horati Jubilee Festival 50 in 2001. Then, with a few skips and jumps, it takes us to the present.

Our Festival 69 theme is Mekorot Mechudashim – Renewing Our Roots. From strong roots, see how our garden of dance has grown, with blooms from all over the world representing so much of the diversity and many diverse aspects of Israeli dance, music and culture.
