Visitors can explore the wide variety of locally grown dates at Souq Waqif
The fourth Local Dates Festival, which opens Tuesday (July 23) at Souq Waqif, is expected to be a major attraction of the Summer in Qatar (SiQ).

The SiQ includes a plethora of retail offerings across participating malls, as well as entertainment for all, summer camps for children and youth, thrilling experiences and sporting tournaments, in addition to exciting travel and hospitality promotions running until August 16.
