Artas Village, Bethlehem

Another attraction in the Village is the Artas Folklore Museum on the north side of the valley, which features implements, past and present, of village culture. Every year in April, the Artas Folklore Center organizes the annual Lettuce Festival which features traditional dance and music and is a must see for any visitor.

The Folklore Center provides a window into the “most studied village in Palestine.” Artas has been the focus of archaeological study for centuries, and this historical building serves to highlight the village’s cultural and ecological blessings. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Artas Valley, the Artas Spring, and the shrine of Hortus Conclusus and its enchanting gardens, the Center serves to maintain these treasures and raise public awareness in order to engender pride in them. The Center also has a program to protect threatened buildings and hosts an in-house folklore troupe that delivers traditional performances.
