The 9th edition of the Halal Qatar Festival, organised by the Katara Cultural Village Foundation is set to take place from 2 February to 10 February.
The theme of the festival centres around a distinct feature of Qatar's heritage, one that is drawn from deep within the deserts of Qatar sheep and goat breeding. It will also present specific methods that help in breeding and raising sheep and will also showcase numerous traditional events along with educational and recreational activities
The major aspect of the festival is the livestock auction which will contribute to the development of livestock production. The festival also provides a unique platform to showcase and acquire the best breeds of halal, as well as sheep and goats.
Halal Qatar Festival this year features several new activities, especially for children, such as the Little Shepherd competition, which aims at reviving the heritage while teaching the new generations about the skills, experiences, knowledge, ethics and values of the profession. In addition, the festival includes traditional handicrafts made by professionals who will explain to the visitors how these items were important in the olden days in a bid to revive this traditional craft.
