The Negev Mountain Tourism Partnership has stated: "The festival will open during the transition between summer and fall when the squill and colchicum begin to blossom and decorate the desert. Many travelers frequented the area this summer and we are excited to open the season for those who have fallen in love with the desert in recent years. While in the center of the country the humidity and heat continue during the evenings, the weather in the Negev Mountains will be cool and pleasant. The traditional "Intimidbar" festival provides an opportunity to expose the local culture, artistic work and the desert inspiration that Mitzpe Ramon is proud of."
