"Jacob's Ladder" Festival:
Traditionally, Kibbutz Ginosar hosts the annual "Jacob's Ladder" festival, where you can enjoy three days of world wide music mainly in English: Irish, country, folk and blues, near the beautiful Ginosar beach and the spacious green surroundings of the kibbutz. It is a magical cultural event in a special atmosphere which is all about music, fun and nostalgia. Apart from great music, the festival offers many attractions for the whole family: music workshops, Yoga, Tai Chi, arts & crafts for the kids and much, much more.
Nof Ginosar also offers several accommodation options for festival guests: tents on the beach, country-style lodging at the resort or pampering rooms at the Nof Ginosar Hotel.
"The Ancient Boat" Museumis a hands-on museum and educational center at the Igal Alon house. The museum offers a varied world of colors, sounds, sights and experiential activities. Various exhibits display early settlement in the Galilee, a memorial room dedicated to Igal Alon, a well-loved Israeli hero, and an impressive exhibit of an ancient boat, which has been conclusively dated to the fateful first century A.D. – the time of Jesus and the Great Revolt of the Jews against the Romans. The story of the 2000 year-old boat's discovery and preservation is depicted in films, photos and animation, while the amazing boat itself is presented in the main museum hall.
