The convention will bring more than 1,000  Christian Palestinians to the Holy Land and to the village that was originally founded in the 16th Century by five brothers.

The exquisite hills and valleys of the village offer the perfect escape from any busy schedule for all international and local people who come to support local products and boost the economy while celebrating the deep cultural heritage offered by one of the most ancient spots in Palestine also known by its Biblical name, Ephraim.

The two-day celebration usually happens on the first Saturday and Sunday of October (excluding religious holidays) and gives venue to local music groups to celebrate their talent and skills in promoting a different face of Palestine. Artists from Brazil, Germany, Greece, Spain, England, Sri Lanka, and Japan have performed in the last eight years in Taybeh.
