Diriyah Season 2019

Located in the heart of Riyadh’s historic city of Diriyah, home to one of Saudi Arabia’s Unesco Heritage Sites, the new season is once again calling all sports fanatics, foodies, and thrill-seekers for four months of truly unmissable entertainment experiences.

The first edition of the Diriyah Season in 2019 has hosted many exciting events, including concerts, a Formula E Championship, the momentous professional heavyweight ‘Clash on the Dunes’ fight, and Saudi Arabia’s first international tennis tournament.

Not much has been revealed about the upcoming events, but we can’t wait to see what this year’s season has in store for us. We’re also hoping Diriyah’s Bujairi Terrace – Riyadh’s new dining and retail destination – will be officially unveiled by then.

As commented on SPA agency news, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, chairman of the Diriyah Season committee, said, “We are delighted to announce the imminent launch of the Diriyah Season 2022 in the historic city, which features a great ancient historical heritage and deep-rooted geography and is listed on Unesco’s World Urban Heritage sites.”

In a press statement, the CEO of Diriyah Gate Development Authority, Jerry Inzerillo, added that Diriyah is an ideal location to host regional and international events. “We are excited to see large numbers of visitors from all over the world in the new season, and we look forward to satisfying visitors’ passion for sports and entertainment experiences.”
