Souk Okaz Festival
Souk Okaz Starts August 11, 2015
This important cultural center was introduced more than 12 centuries ago but eventually declined. The event has been successfully revived in recent years and has become very popular. Prizes are awarded to honor outstanding poets, craftsmen, folk artists, photographers, calligraphists, and painting and sculpture artists. Located 40km from Taif it is a popular tourist destination.
This year, the festival runs from the 11th August for two weeks. If you would like to organise a trip to visit this year’s festival Haya Tour can help you organise and book your itinerary. To view some beautiful photos from previous years, please visit the official Website
