Everyone in Israel seems to know that the northern Negev is covered with beautiful red anemones every February. This spectacular phenomenon led to the creation of the annual Darom Adom (“Red South”) Festival, which takes place in the northern Negev between the Shikma and Habesor streams. This year’s festivities are in honor of Israel’s 70th birthday and are expected to draw an all-time high number of visitors.
This year, the city of Sderot will be joining the festivities. In addition to enjoying the beauty of the flower-covered hills, guests can join guided tours run by Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund, browse at vegetable markets and visit agricultural fairs.
