Qatar Tourism (QT) has announced the schedule of upcoming events as part of Shop Qatar, the largest shopping festival in the country with mega prizes and Arab superstars taking centre stage.

Participating in the month-long celebration of Qatar’s retail industry are ten of the most popular shopping malls in the country including Doha Festival City, Place Vendôme and Lagoona Mall. Beauty retailer Sephora is also hosting a series of events such as Sephora Saturdays at Place Vendôme, featuring masterclasses that are open to all from 7 pm to 10 pm. On Wednesdays, Sephora Ladies Night will be held with the same timings, while a special Sephora Men’s Night is scheduled for 4 March. Alongside this, Harvey Nichols at Doha Festival City is set to host a grand fashion show on 14 March featuring local designers’ Ramadan collections of Caftan and Abayas. 

Shoppers are also eligible to enter a draw for mega prizes worth over QAR2M for every QAR200 spent at participating shopping malls. Qatar Tourism will be holding the raffle draws at Lagoona Mall, Place Vendome, and Doha Festival City (DFC) on 4, 11, and 18 March respectively. Six cash prizes worth QAR10,000, three cash prizes worth QAR20,000, and a grand prize of either a BMW X5 or a studio apartment in The Pearl Island are at stake.

Shoppers can also look forward to spectacular roaming performances that will take place at participating malls throughout the month-long shopping festival. These acts include dazzling winter circus and heliosphere aerial performances, as well as a captivating trip to the enchanted fairy forest for young children. 

Aside from the mall activities, Shop Qatar will also bring performances by Haifa and Elissa on 9 March at Mondrian Doha, and Oumaima Taleb on 10 March at Katara Amphitheatre.

To promote the variety of events and activities for Shop Qatar, Qatar Tourism has partnered with Khalifa Al Haroon, founder and CEO of community platform ‘I Love Qatar’ to be the face of this year’s shopping festival.
