The Jerusalem March takes place during Sukkot each year. The march runs from three starting points to the Sacher Park and attracts participants from around the world who make this a very interesting event. Following this, there are family events and activities in the Sacher Park. The 2016 Jerusalem March takes place October 20. This is the 61st year of the march. There is a small participation fee for taking place in the full march, although the ceremonial march taking place in Sacher Park in the afternoon is free for all.
