The Art Fair

Nachalat Binyamin Art Fair is the biggest and oldest in Israel, and one of the most beautiful and esteemed in the world.

The art fair was established in 1988 and is open every Tuesday and Friday, as well as on holidays and “Chol HaMoed” days.

The art fair spans across more than half a kilometer, through the promenade of Nachalat Binyamin and branching to the streets of Rambam and HaShomer.

The Art Fair’s unique location in the heart of the hustling and bustling midtown Tel-Aviv and the special urban surroundings, which includes several unique historic buildings and dozens of graffiti and street art, is a great attraction for a fun day in Tel-Aviv.

The art fair is run and managed by Tel-Aviv-Yafo Municipality and is well organized and secured.

All the artists participating in the art fair undergo an admissions committee and are acting according to a permit issued by Tel-Aviv-Yafo Municipality.

The Art Fair is dedicated to arts and crafts. There are more than 230 stalls that showcase art and handmade products in the fields of Painting, Sculpting, Ceramics, Jewelry, Textile, Woodwork, Glass, Paper, Plastic, Stone, Judaica, Toys, Games, Dolls, Recycling and much more…

You can visit the stalls and meet the artists themselves selling their handmade creations.

You can find a variety of handmade products. Here are several examples.

Though it is a touristic place, some artists may object to photography. I understand their worries about somebody copying their work, but that is not the way. If somebody wants to copy it, they will find a way to reproduce it.
