    With pleasure we INVITE (folk ensembles,choral groups, majorette teams, art schols.orchestras,bands, modern dance, balroom dance teams..) (children, youth and adult groups  ) to participate on IV International Music & Dance festival “JORDAN FEST”   21-25 April  2023

  The intention of our invitation  and the Festival light motive is to present the cultural tradition of different countries and to provide an opportunity for the members of groups to get together, to establish friendships and culture presentation trough dance and music.The idea of the Festival is to bring the music closer to the people and to present the music on the streets and the squares. 

   Aqaba is the only coastal city in Jordan, an otherwise landlocked country. But not every country can boast a city with such a beautiful setting as Aqaba, with the red mountains of Wadi Rum in the background and the Red Sea in the foreground. Aqaba is a resort city and a port city, with tourism a major industry and undergoing a major expansion with new luxury neighborhoods, attractions, and hotels opening. The main attraction of Aqaba is, of course, its Red Sea coastline, and the beaches, diving, watersports, and coastal resorts, that come with that. But the city’s center and markets are becoming increasingly attractive. Aqaba’s location, close to Wadi Rum and Petra, and the border with Israel and Egypt make it a popular base for touring the region, with trips available to a host of destinations. Year-round sunshine and warm weather just add to the attractiveness of Aqaba as an ultimate resort city.

           Red Sea beaches and snorkeling put Aqaba on the travel map, but Jordan's only coastal city is an enticing destination in its own right. Along with a well-earned reputation for friendly locals, Aqaba boasts seafood cafés, a waterfront promenade, and gorgeous desert scenery.
