The questionnaire aims to understand your wants, likes and dislikes to make the upcoming Seasons more personal, significant, diverse, exciting, and exhilarating. In addition, the “twice as big” campaign promises to make up for the past two years due to the pandemic.
In line with Saudi’s Vision 2030, the Saudi Seasons play a key role in delivering the leadership’s vision to enrich the lives of citizens and enhance the quality of life for residents. It will also help promote the different tourist destinations and highlight the cultural, entertainment and sports treasures that position Saudi firmly on the global tourism map.

They consisted of the Eastern Region Season, Ramadan Season, Eid Al Fitr Season, Jeddah Season, Ta’if Season, Eid Al Adha Season, the National Day Season, Riyadh Season, Diriyah Season, AlUla Season and Ha’il Season. With more than 390 key events, the debut Saudi Seasons attracted over 50 million visitors.
