Drinking festivals and live music events? Plus, progressive rallies and theater performances? If you immediately thought these exciting summer happenings were occurring in and around Tel Aviv, think again. This August, Jerusalem is hosting an array of cultural events, beyond its legendary holy sites. Keep your spirits high all August long with a wine festival at the beginning of the month and a beer festival during the last weekend of August. If you’re looking for something a little more family friendly, stop by Israel's popular parks for outdoor events, and the Israel Museum for an interactive Cats + Dogs exhibit tour. From classic Israeli music performances to Pride Week, and everything in between, you’ll undoubtedly leave Jerusalem this August with Instagrammable pictures or story-worthy memories.
