Each year, this great festival of arts and culture attracts more and more fans not only from the Middle East but also from Europe, for a full month of artistic programming, both eclectic and of a rare density. Performances of folk music, ballet, poetry, opera, theatre, mime, and other types of concerts are given every night. The artists are mainly either Jordanians or from neighbouring countries, but others come from Europe and America. The shows take place in several places around the city, but especially the tourist site of Jerash, including the ancient theatre, and at the Forum. During a full moon, the atmosphere is absolutely magical … Try to buy tickets in advance: during the festival, they can be purchased only on site.
