Qatar’s Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal,’ along with Qatar Tourism, Qatar Museums, and Doha Expo 2023 Organizing Committee, is organizing the Doha Festive Lightings 2023 event.

The event, held under the slogan ‘Qatar between Now and Then,’ will run from 5.30pm to 1am at the Al Masrah Park and Corniche Pedestrian Tunnel Plaza until December 31.

The festival allows visitors of Doha Expo 2023 to learn more about Qatar’s culture and customs. Al Masrah Park was chosen as the festival’s location as it provides excellent connectivity by Doha Metro and Doha Corniche.

The festival includes several interactive lightings and a series of activities that celebrate Qatari culture, the country’s marine life and wildlife, and highlight technological development.

Some of the attractions are the Dancing Fountain in Corniche Plaza, Path of Pearls in the pedestrian tunnel linking Doha Corniche to Al Masrah Park, Tales of The Sea tunnel, The Maze, Dome of Nomadic Skies, Dome of Pearl Wonders, and the Digital Journey (Hologram).

“We’re pleased to launch the third edition of Doha Festive Lightings in cooperation with our partners and we hope to achieve further cooperation and move forward with this fruitful partnership. We’ve added new and exclusive elements to this year’s festival,” said Ashghal’s Head of External Relations Fatima Jabor Al Kubaisi.

Expo 2023 Doha’s Manager of Public Relations and Communications Department Haifa Al Otaibi stated: “At Expo 2023 Doha, we’re keen to promote Qatari customs and traditions. This festival is designed to enrich and highlight Qatar’s cultural scene to all members of society.”

Sheikha Hessa Al Thani — Head of Marketing and Planning at Qatar Tourism — said: “We’re pleased to partner with Ashghal to bring to residents and visitors an immersive experience that reflects Qatar’s culture. Displayed prominently on the iconic Doha Corniche, the festival adds to the beauty of the surrounding areas. Qatar continues to offer a diverse and distinct tourism offering to its residents as well as international visitors.”
