Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage worked on the training of young people from Taif, who are participating in this year’s Souk Okaz festival.
Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage (SCTH) has recently begun the developmental works at Souk Okaz, the iconic landmark in Taif, to transform it into a year-round leading cultural tourist destination.
The 11th edition of the Souk Okaz festival commencing on July 12 will offer participants a revamped programme, including a new event titled Narrator’s Tent.
During the daily happening, five narrators recounting historical Arabic stories, will take visitors back to the important events of the region’s past.
Overall, the festival will see more than 100 different events reflecting local life as well as the cultural heritage of the venue, including competitions, excursions, workshops and other activities prepared by Saudi Commission for Tourism & Cultural Heritage and tourism partners for residents and visitors alike.
