Marmi Festival is an important frontrunner in preserving the culture, folklore and sentiments associated with the sport of falconry. Falconers have been registered in the World Heritage List 2011 and are significant in Arabic literature and folklore.
The registrations will close on December 26, after which the total registration count and contestant draw lots will help to finalize the details of the tournament. The timetable and schedule of events and tournaments will be confirmed. Registrations for the Young Falconer and Promising Falconer competition are scheduled to happen at Sabkhat Marmi at Sealine. Qatar Al Gannas Society has announced considerable rewards to encourage more participation by falconers.
