Welcome to Qonversations.
Today, we’ll showcase another three must-visit festivals that will make you more interested in exploring Qatar.
Every year, Katara Cultural Village hosts a 7-day-long international Ajyal Film Festival, which celebrates moving pictures from around the world.
In Arabic, Ajyal means ‘generations’; therefore, the festival is created for all ages.
Filmmakers and artists from around the world are regular attendees of the festival. Besides movie screenings and discussions, visitors can enjoy diverse activities like video game tournaments and music performances.
The next one you shouldn’t miss is Katara Traditional Dhow Festival in Doha.
This festival is like a portal into Qatari’s long tradition that celebrates the Dhow boats that have taken sailors around the Arabian seas and beyond for centuries.
More than 70 boats of varying sizes and traditional designs are on display for visitors to see and experience because there’s a chance of going on a dhow cruise for a scenic 30-minute trip to The Pearl.
The festivalgoers can also enjoy art exhibitions, traditional markets, and fireworks shows.
