You can enjoy foodie treats from countries all over Europe, like Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Germany, Finland, France, Netherlands and Sweden.

The event has been organised by the European Union Delegation to Saudi Arabia and the Culinary Arts Commission by the Ministry Of Culture.

More on the DQ

As we said, the cool event will be happening in one of Riyadh’s most popular districts, the Diplomatic Quarter. The area has an array of international embassies adding to the culture of the district.

The district is also known as Al Safarat locally and sprawls nearly eight square kilometres and houses some of the top happenings in the city including a new cultural centre called Fenaa AlAwwal.

As you can probably already tell, the district is big on culture and celebrating the many different ones Riyadh houses.
