Last updated May 16th 2019

Tel Aviv’s White Night celebration is one of the biggest events of the year, with all night parties; and when the shop owners and restaurants literally don’t close. Stores that usually close at 10pm will be open till 6am and beer will be drank and music will be heard in different public locations throughout the city. Even some museums and galleries stay open all night, so there are hundreds of things to do! This year Laila Lavan is on Thursday May 16th.
