Eid Al-Fitr Celebrations in Diriyah: A Spectacular Display of Joy and Festivities

Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) has revealed an exciting lineup of events and activities for both Diriyah residents and visitors to celebrate this year's Eid Al-Fitr.

Festivities are set to take place across various locations, including the historic UNESCO World Heritage Site of At-Turaif, the premium culinary destination of Bujairi Terrace, and Diriyah mosques.

The Eid Al-Fitr celebrations at At-Turaif will embody traditional Saudi hospitality. Visitors will be greeted with the rich aroma of Saudi coffee and Dokhon, promising an unforgettable experience.

The festivities will feature a series of events, including captivating performances of the traditional Saudi Ardah, the traditional celebratory dance, and the lively Samri folklore dance.

In addition to activating the "Nuzul" experience, it transports visitors back in time to immerse them in the daily life of At-Turaif during the First Saudi State.

Through a series of theatrical performances, guests get a glimpse of life as it was three hundred years ago. Each mudbrick house along Nuzul Street represents a different aspect of that era, inviting visitors to step inside and experience history like never before.

From shopping in the souk to schooling and visiting the doctor, the "Nuzul" experience offers a unique opportunity to engage with the past in a truly immersive way.

Visitors can partake in activities such as the purebred Arabian horse show, the Diriyah coffee workshop, and calligraphy stalls offering beautifully written Arabic names.

DGDA decorated five mosques across the city to elevate the festive spirit for the Eid Al-Fitr celebrations.

These mosques hosted special breakfast tables on the first day of Eid, creating a warm and welcoming environment for everyone.

The "Huwamah Event" also featured several buses touring Diriyah's neighbourhoods in the evening, allowing families and visitors to partake in the Eid activities.

Nearly 25,000 gifts, including chocolate boxes, were distributed at various sites, adding to the festivities. "Souq Al Mawsim" also welcomed visitors for the first time during Eid Al-Fitr, offering a range of exciting activities.

Visitors to Bujairi Terrace were able to indulge in a variety of activities, including live music performances, engaging storytelling sessions, curated workshops for children, and a range of traditional games and activities.

DGDA remains committed to fostering strong connections with the local Diriyah community, extending a heartfelt welcome to residents and visitors on all occasions throughout the year.
