Jewish Culture Festival: Singer's Warsaw

Saturday Aug 27 - Sunday Sep 4    
Warsaw's annual Jewish Festival - also known as 'Singer's Warsaw,' after Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer, who grew up in Warsaw's Yiddish-speaking quarter before WWI - aims to celebrate the city's Jewish heritage and recreate the vibrance of its prewar atmosphere, while showcasing contemporary Jewish culture and promoting tolerance. A truly multicultural, multidisciplinary event, the festival includes international artists in the fields of jazz, pop, klezmer, cabaret, theatre, literature, visual arts and more, performing intimately indoors, on the streets, or on outdoor stages in front of large, enthusiastic crowds. Popular among locals and visitors alike, Singer's Warsaw also includes a range of activities for children and families, and is a wonderful event to get involved in.

This year's events (2022) will be taking place in a range of venues around Warsaw, including the Jewish Theatre - which will have an outdoor stage on the edge of Saxon Garden, the Nóżyk Synagogue, Teatr Kwadrat, the Austrian Cultural Forum and the Yiddish Cultural Centre (ul. Andersa 15). This year's annual 'Klezmer Night' on Plac Defilad will feature the Ukrainian group Kommuna Lux - self-described as Odessa gangsta folk and klezmer, and the final concert in the National Theatre will be performed by international star Yasmin Levy, where the Israeli singer will be accompanied by Gang Tango.
