QSF to return with special activities for Eid

The country's longest festival, Qatar Summer Festival (QSF) is set to return from June 14 to August 31, 2018.
To be held under the theme 'Colour Your Summer', the festival invites residents and visitors to kick off the season's festivities with special Eid Al Fitr celebrations which will be held over the first week of QSF.
Mashal Shahbik, director of Festivals and Tourism Events at Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), said"Over the years, QSF has grown to become synonymous with family-friendly activities, entertainment, hospitality and shopping offers that bring colour to everyone's summer. With the festival in its fifth edition, we are particularly excited to add special activities for sports fans to enjoy the world's most anticipated football tournament."
She added,"The summer festivities, which this year extend from Eid Al Fitr to the end of August, form a key part of our efforts to energise the tourism sector through diversifying Qatar's events calendar and tourist source markets."
As this year's edition coincides with the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018, QSF has partnered with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy and Ministry of Sports and Culture to bring Qatar Fan Zone to Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena.
The fan zone's activations will kick off on Thursday, June 14 and continue until the World Cup final on Sunday, July 15.
Entry to the Qatar Fan Zone is free, offering all residents and visitors an opportunity to keep up with the excitement surrounding the month-long Russia World Cup tournament in an atmosphere that emulates the World Cup vibes.
In addition to live screenings of all matches, the zone will feature live entertainment and concerts, a gaming and activation area, and more than 40 food stalls.
From the first to the fifth day of Eid Al Fitr Eid, QSF's participating malls will be putting on special free entertainment shows for shoppers and families looking for some indoor fun.
Other activities of the festival will include entertainment city at the Doha Exhibition & Convention Center, Shop & Win through which retailers at 11 participating malls will be offering up to 50 percent discounts and special promotions and hospitality offers from about 50 of Qatar's five- and four-star hotels.
