The Pearl-Qatar, United Development Company’s (UDC) flagship project and one of the largest urban developments in Qatar, has prepared a line-up of entertainment activities during Eid Al Fitr holiday which is set to kick off on 6 July and will run until 8 July. The festive activities in addition to an Eid shopping bazaar ‘Al Maqtoora’, will give residents and visitors the opportunity to spend memorable times with their families.

Over the three days of Eid from 4–9 pm, The Pearl-Qatar will host a rich entertainment program in Medina Centrale’s indoor arena of Souq Al Medina featuring a range of family and children recreational activities that will appeal to all ages and interests. These include game booths, a drawing and colouring station, stilt walkers, face painting, clowns, balloon twisting and decorations, mascots and much more in addition to distribution of popcorn, cotton candy and ice cream.

‘Al Maqtoora’ Market Bazaar which will also be located in Souq Al Medina, side by side with the main event, is one of several ways UDC and The Pearl-Qatar are partnering with local entrepreneurs by giving them a platform to promote their businesses. Organised by Bedaya Center, which supports Qatari start-ups, ‘Al Maqtoora’ is set to exhibit food, fashion items, perfumes, jewellery, accessories, drawings and creative designs.

The carefully-planned Eid activities build on a successful track record of previous family events which have witnessed a huge turnout and many happy faces catering fun to the community while reflecting Qatar’s genuine heritage and deep rooted culture.

Also, as an iconic site of Qatar, The Pearl-Qatar offers residents and visitors unmatched shopping, dining and leisure experiences, making the Island a unique retail and entertainment hub in Qatar that plays a key role in driving tourism to the country especially during Eid holidays.
