Each year, the Darom Adom Festival follows the rainy season, when the ordinarily green landscape of the northern Negev is covered with a magnificent carpet of scarlet red anemones. To celebrate this spectacle of Israel’s national flower being in full bloom as well as Israel’s agricultural achievements more generally is the annual Darom Adom Festival. For four weekends (February 1-3; 8-10; 15-17; 22-24), the festival will feature a great array of family-orientated activities that will be taking place in the Eshkol Region. And during the mid-week, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in the region taking advantage of some of the activities whilst the region is quieter.
This year the festival features mountain bike marathons, poetry readings, concerts every Thursday by Israeli artists, and much more.
