Diriyah Season's popular Diriyah Nights are headed back

The open-air wonderland will be returning next year…

Diriyah Season is an annual culture-focused festival that brings the birthplace of the Kingdom to life through a variety of exciting and engaging events and experiences. One of the most popular events of the season last year was the gorgeous Diriyah Nights, and it’s back this time around due to public demand.

Starting early next year on Thursday January 11, the nights usually combine music, culture, and food in a stunning outdoor setting.

Wander along the walkways illuminated by glittering lights and explore the enchanting site, which brings together the best of local and global contemporary art and design, exceptional food, and live music, dance, poetry, and theatrical performances.

Diriyah Nights

Last year, the event offered activities for all ages and performances by local and regional artists for evenings of authentic Arabic music. There were also pop-ups by local Saudi brands offering rare jewellery pieces, abayas, and leather goods. Rotano Audio Co. even hosted musical evenings called, “Diriyah Nights Sessions” last time around.

More Diriyah Season events

During the month of December, we’re looking forward to an exhibition of works by one of the leading architects of the twentieth century, the Hassan Fathy Exhibition, a 60@Sixty exhibition showcasing a rare glimpse of 60 objects from the collection of Saudi artefacts, and Bujairi Terrace’s Bujairi ‘Always On,’ where you can catch everything from live performances to themed storytelling, art and craft workshops, and immersive art installations.
