The activities of the eighth Al-Jouf Dates Festival
The ninth Al-Jouf Dates Festival, which is hosted by the region’s administration in the governorate’s exhibition city and will last for seven days, was opened by Prince Faisal, the Emir of Al-Jawf.
The festival, now in its ninth year, offers a diverse range of cultural and literary events, as well as folk evenings, as well as specific pillars for productive families.
The ninth Al-Jouf Dates Festival featured activities tailored to various sectors and categories, as well as the participation of a large number of date producers who expressed pleasure with the services given.
The Al-Jawf Dates Festival has several advantages, the most important of which is its commitment to helping farmers, businesses, and economic activity, as well as promoting high-quality Al-Jouf agricultural products.
The Dates Festival, as well as other festivals, are popular tourist attractions because they reflect the Kingdom’s ancient tradition and history.
The event is expected to help in the creation of an interactive platform between date producers and consumers, as well as the producers’ marketing reach.
It also intends to market Al-Jawf date products on a local and regional level, with plans to plant one million palm trees in the region and produce roughly 45 thousand tonnes of dates annually.
