Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Visitors to the Old City of Jerusalem this September will be able to enjoy a celebration in the style of the Middle Ages – Jerusalem Knights.

Musicians, dancers, magicians, jugglers, knights, princesses, troubadours, royal court jesters and peddlers from the Middle Ages will return to the alleyways of the Old City and the charming corners of the Christian Quarter – a unique celebration in a unique setting.

 Every Thursday in September, beginning September 8th, 2011 through September 22nd between 19:00 until 23:00, visitors and tourists are invited to enter the Jaffa Gate and travel back in time to the Middle Ages. The Old City will come to life in the cool fall evenings with characters and music from the past, as well as performances of dance, fire, acrobatics and theatre.

 A special circular walking trail will take tourists and visitors in a loop from Jaffa Gate to Muristan Square and back, taking in all the medieval attractions as well as the inherent beauty of the Old City itself.

 Local businesses, cafes and restaurants will all stay open late, many offering special deals for the Jerusalem Knights celebration.

 Jerusalem Knights is a project of the Jerusalem Development Authority, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and the Jerusalem Municipality, managed by the Ariel Company.

 All events are free of charge.
