Celebrate spring at Saudi Arabia’s Taif Rose Festival

The record-breaking festival runs from 7 to 14 May.

Saudi Arabia is in full bloom. The Ministry of Culture has unveiled the Taif Rose Festival 2024, which is taking place from 7 to 14 May. So, if you want to see some of the kingdom’s most radiant roses, here’s what you need to know. 

Taif is famous in the Middle East for its roses and production of rose fragrances. Taif Rose Festival 2024 gives you the chance to admire the beauty of the flower, plus the region’s marvellous mountains and Insta-worthy views. So, here’s your chance to experience its parade of roses through the streets of Taif to Al Raddaf Park. 

Taif Rose Festival

So far, we know that Taif Rose Festival 2024 will feature a light show, shopping stalls and a dedicated children’s zone. Local chefs will showcase local cuisines at the food stalls, which are inspired by and incorporate the Taif rose. If previous festivals are anything to go by, we’re also expecting live music and perfume-making workshops.

Plus, in true Saudi style, the Taif Rose Festival has big ambitions. Previously, it broke a Guinness world record for the biggest basket of roses. The basket included 84,450 assorted roses, which were created by 190 young people over 168 hours.

If you’re looking for more festivals in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah Events 2024 is taking place throughout the year. Plus, Riyadh Season is currently underway and takes place across the capital.
