Eid Season 2024 is coming back in April

It’s only a few weeks away…

Eid Season 2024 is happening in early April, so if you haven’t made plans for this Eid Al-Fitr, you’re in luck with the festival’s return.

The colourful festival aims to promote vibrant energy, from colours, decorations, gatherings, and fireworks. The Saudi Season will be happening right after the incredible Ramadan Season that took place throughout the holy month.

During the Eid Season last year, cities across the Kingdom hosted concerts, fireworks, and events. The event is brought to you by the General Entertainment Authority, we’re expecting tonnes of fun, incredible events, and concerts, too.

The festival is focused on celebrating every aspect of Eid, from buying new clothes to enjoying gatherings with your family and loved ones. The new identity of the festival celebrates Saudi culture.

Currently, three concerts have been announced for the new season in April, including a Khalid Abdulrahman and Nawaf Aljabrti on Friday April 12, Mai Farouq and Nawaf Aljabrti one on Saturday April 13, and lastly a Tamer Ashour concert in Jeddah on Sunday April 14.

Complete plans including fireworks, and other events haven’t been revealed just yet but stay tuned to What’s On for what’s on in Riyadh.

The Eid break

things to do in Riyadh this Eid Al-Fitr weekend

As confirmed by Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development and reported by Gulf News, both the public and private sector will enjoy a four-day break from Monday April 8. The public holiday will conclude on Thursday April 11, but for most people who enjoy a Friday-Saturday weekend in the Kingdom, that will mean a full six days off.
