Tel Aviv will host the 10th annual White Night Festival, a 24-hour event featuring citywide art, culture and music events, June 27.
The White Night Festival first started in 2003, in celebration of Tel Aviv being named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its collection of more than 4,000 Bauhaus and International-style architecture buildings. Now in its 10th year, the festival will include a lineup of citywide street and indoor events, including:
lighting displays projected onto 50 buildings along Rothschild Boulevard and Bialik Street
music and theater performances on Rothschild Boulevard
a “WiFi Headphones Party” at Rabin Square
a sunrise music performance at Zuk Beach
live music at the Jaffa Port
ballroom dancing in the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center lobby
late-night shopping and music performances at the Jaffa flea market
an Irish dance workshop
and sunrise yoga at the Tel Aviv Port (Namal), among other activities
“The annual White Night Festival is one of Tel Aviv’s most exciting events for locals and travelers alike,” said Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North & South America. “We are excited for this year’s festival which will help promote Tel Aviv as one of the world’s most dynamic cities for arts and culture.”
A selection of art galleries, cultural institutions, restaurants and nightclubs will remain open for extended late-night hours.
