Jerash Festival of Culture and Arts
Jerash has hosted this major arts festival since 1980. The Roman ruins feature as stages and all venues are within the old city, easily accessible from modern Jerash. It is a remarkable experience to see this ancient city - two millenia old - burst into life over the two-week period of the festival. Past editions have attracted internationally renowned poets, musicians, dancers and actors from over 30 countries.
Date: July to August 2012 TBA
