The Taif Rose Festival is back for 2024

Stop and smell the roses…

It’s springtime here in Saudi Arabia, and that means Taif will be seeing some stunning blooms of bright pink roses. The Taif Rose Festival comes back this time around, every year to celebrate these blooms.

Happening from Tuesday May 7 to Tuesday May 14 through the streets of Taif to Al Raddaf Park, this gorgeous festival is where you want to go to experience true springtime in Saudi Arabia (which we don’t have to tell you is rare).

Not many details have been revealed about the festival thus far, but we do know that a light show will be happening, and there are also expected to be shopping stalls and a dedicated children’s zone.

Last year, local chefs also joined in on the fun by creating dishes featuring the coveted Taif roses too. The festival has even achieved a world record for the largest flower basket at 12 meters long, almost 8 meters wide and 1.3 meters tall. So we can’t wait to find out what’s in store for this year’s edition.
