The Israel Festival was founded in 1961 by Aaron Zvi Propes as a summer music festival taking place in the ancient Roman theatre in Caesarea, although since the majority of performances have been held in Jerusalem. The program was later broadened to include all the performing arts, and the location was enlarged to include venues all over the country.
Throughout the festival, audiences are able to enjoy performances by artists from all over the world, as well as premieres of Israeli works and tributes to leading Israeli artists.
The public can also attend a large selection of free performances, including street theatre, children's shows and a nightly jazz club.
