Birzeit Heritage Week
At the height of summer, the still-sleepy city of Birzeit comes to life in a five-day festival of music, dance, cuisine, film, poetry, and theatre, all within the beautifully restored old city. Home to one of the largest and most prestigious universities in the region, Birzeit is known for its college-town ambience and wonderful hospitality. While it is already a popular destination for local families, international tourists are increasingly moving beyond the traditional tourist sites in the West Bank to enjoy the living culture of Palestine amidst the beautifully terraced hillsides.
