The festival takes place annually, during Chol HaMoed of the Sukkot Holiday. And, true to its name (Tamar in Hebrew = Date), the Tamar Festival celebrates the end of the date harvesting season. The season that brings with it that sweet, exquisite, healthy fruit – the date, which is so characteristic of the Dead Sea Land.
