Organisers have revealed further exciting line up of entertainment for the Qatar International Food Festival (QIFF), which is hosted by Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways will be held on the grounds of the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) Park on Doha’s waterfront from 20 to 23 March 2014.

Doha Jazz and violinist Soledad together with popular local musician Tarek Sidani will all be returning to entertain the crowds this year. In addition, a number of new acts will be joining the festivities including multicultural, tanoura and break dancers, a short film by DFI, a light show, light painting, pizza art, a food comic, a Carnaval show and the popular characters from the children’s show, Baraem.

Last year, the four-day festival attracted more than 70,000 visitors in 2013. With such positive feedback on the entertainment that was showcased during QIFF 2013, organisers aimed to bring even more exciting family friendly acts for this years’ festival. QIFF organisers believe the festival is a wonderful opportunity to expose everyone in Qatar to various cultures and entertainment locally and internationally.

One of the festivals biggest draws last year is also making a welcome return. The Qatar Airways Cooking Theatre will feature cooking demonstrations from award-winning celebrity Chef Ramzi Choueri and local Chef Aysha Al Tamimi who specialises in Qatari cuisine. A number of chefs specialising in Brazilian, Italian and International cuisine will also be giving demonstrations in the cooking theatre. All of the chefs will be entertaining the crowds with the exciting culinary demonstrations daily over the course of the four-day festival.

Also returning for the second year in a row is the Dinner in the Sky. Those that wish to add a little bit of excitement and adventure to their dining experience, can enjoy a three course meal catered by Renaissance Hotel as they take in the stunning Doha skyline from 40 metres above ground. Visitors who wish to stay a little more grounded may enjoy Dinner on a Dhow sponsored by Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels or the BBQ Donut sponsored by the Diplomatic Club.
