The Jerusalem Knights Festival is held in the Old City of Jerusalem almost every year in November. The Jerusalem Knights Festival is a medieval style celebration in the unique setting of the Old City of Jerusalem. It will feature various performers.

Map of the area:

Admission to all events is free.

Here we’re getting towards Jaffa gate. Because there is space there, most festivals put some installation there.

A crane was holding a metallic construction inside which a drummer was seating. Also, there was a white ball hanging.

Crowds watching the show:

Hopefully nobody strained the neck 😉

But wait, the white ball isn’t for decoration. Three girls popped out of it:

As we entered through Jaffa gate we saw a stage there. There were different groups of dancers and here you can see two photos of girls performing. These may be not the best, but since it’s a free event there are big crowds and even such photos need some art of elbowing 😉

There musicians and street performers scattered around the old city.

And since it’s a knight festival, there should be knights:

They had rounds of staged fights until the winner was selected.

Overall, it’s very nice and if you’re in the area don’t miss it.

That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
