The two large markets, real shopping and bargaining centers, will become the stage for street artists for two weeks. A large open-air theater, in the beautiful Doha.
Of course, between one exhibition and another, be sure to visit the splendid Arab market, a centenary place particularly loved by locals and tourists.
Venues of the Doha Spring Festival will be, as usual, the two most renowned Souqs.
Souq Waqif is located in the center, easily accessible on foot. Alternatively, take the Metro’s Gold Line to get off at the stop of the same name, just a few minutes’ walk away.
The Souq Wakrah is quite recent (inaugurated in 2014), less crowded and less known than the “big brother”, but just as interesting. It rises in a suggestive position, overlooking the sea.
You can reach it by car or by taxi, from the nearest metro stop (Wakra, red line), about 5 km away.
The shows take place every day from 16:00 until about 22:09.
The event is free for everyone and it is not necessary to purchase a ticket to access.
The program is really rich and varied, to meet the needs of all visitors.
Lots of entertainment for young and old, especially with circus shows, theaters and magic exhibitions. In the square there are rides. The little ones can have fun with the ponies.
Cultural activities are planned, such as art exhibitions. There will be over 60 games that you can participate in: volleyball matches, kayak rides.
At the Doha spring festival, fun is guaranteed for the whole family.
