On a Budget?

Hosting a party at home or a clubhouse is the easiest and most practical option for a party. However, there are other places you can host a party outside of your home without any cost beyond food, drinks and decorations.

Plan a picnic or BBQ at Al Bidda Park! Bring your own food, drinks and decorations to celebrate the special occasion. Maybe be a potluck? There are dozens of BBQ stalls you can book if you want more than just a picnic. Make sure to clean up after the party is over.

You can also plan a beach trip with any of Qatar’s local tour companies such as Qatar International Adventures (QIA), Qatar Inbound Tours, Arabian Adventures Qatar and more. Or make it a DIY beach trip to celebrate a birthday or anniversary with loved ones, bringing your own food, drinks, games and decorations for a picnic or camp on the beach (Al Wakrah, Fuwairit, Al Khor, Dukhan, Sealine, Simaisma and more).
