The Ministry of Culture has launched the ‘Garangao Market’ at the Umm Salal headquarters in Darb Al-Saai until 24 March, operating between 7:30 pm and midnight. 

This initiative aims to preserve Qatar’s rich heritage, traditions, and customs while nurturing national identity and embracing the significance of the holy month of Ramadan.

Garangao is a cherished Qatari celebration occurring on the 14th day of Ramadan. The event serves as a way to reward children for their fasting efforts during the first half of Ramadan and encourages them to continue fasting throughout the month. Additionally, Garangao is an occasion to express gratitude to Al Mosaher, who diligently wakes people up for suhoor meals throughout Ramadan, fostering a sense of community and togetherness among families.

The ‘Garangao Market’ will feature 80 shops offering a variety of Garangao essentials, food, and cornucopia-inspired gifts and merchandise, along with educational workshops for children. The event will recreate the vibrant atmosphere of old Qatari Fereej districts through its authentic designs, capturing the essence of this festive cultural occasion.
