Qatar Tourism and Exhibitions Authority announced today the introduction of an exciting new series of summer events called “Entertainment City”. The new initiative will be hosted at the Doha Exhibitions Center, where events and activities will run from July 5th through August 15th.
The ambitious program will make the Doha Exhibitions Center a must-see destination, providing a variety of options for kids and families all in a single, convenient location. Entertainment City will feature leisure and sports activities, cultural shows, sports, games and other fun activities, geared to people of all ages.
Speaking during a press conference, Mr. Lahdan Al Mohannadi, Head of Organizing Local Exhibitions, explained: “The festival will provide families, and especially children on their summer holidays, with a culture-rich, educational and fun-packed vacation experience without traveling far from home. With the introduction of Entertainment Town, Qatar Tourism and Exhibitions Authority is promoting high-quality leisure, and cultural events to make the 2009 summer lively and unforgettable.”
To create a truly unique series of events, QTEA have invited artists from Europe, Asia and India to perform. The live shows will include plays, acrobatic shows, magic acts, and puppet shows.
For those looking for more activity, organized sports events will give children the opportunity to exercise and compete. Additionally, child-friendly rides will be available for kids from 3 to 14 years old with extreme rides set-up outside of the Doha Exhibitions Center for thrill-seekers.
To make the event fun for all attending families, restaurants, cafes and shops will be set up in the Exhibitions Center throughout the duration of festival.
The wide range of activities and events at Entertainment City will ensure there is something for everyone.
