The tenth edition of Halal Qatar Festival 2021 (goats and sheep) will be launched by Katara-the Cultural Village this February. It will commence between February 13 to 21 with participation of many GCC countries.
Three main highlights of the festival will be : “Auction, Elite Auction, and Mazayen”, along with the Sheds.
The festival is held each year to encourage the efforts to revive the heritage and preserve the customs and traditions through a vivid picture reflecting various details of wild and desert life.
Linking all the past, customs and traditions, it is a great way to encourage the Qatari festivals among young people.
Katara is providing a platform to breeders across the GCC to display as well as acquire the best types of livestock. This is being done to also improve livestock production and better the breed sheep and goats.
In the festival, there is also designated a day for the Elite Auction (Elite Arab Sheep, Elite Ardi Goat, and Syrian Sheep Elite) which will take place at 7pm on February 14, 17 and 20.
The timings for this festival will be from 9am to 12pm, and from 3pm to 10 pm.
