From January to April, the white-pink bloom of the Arabian Almond takes over Jebel Jais’ peak. The theme for the eleventh edition was inspired by this element of nature. The nonprofit fiesta will display the creations of regional and upcoming photographers, filmmakers, and artists. Visitors can anticipate a varied calendar of artistic and cultural events.

Explore the magical location made of clay, sand, and coral, where there will be more than 120 works of art on showcase. Each piece on the exhibit exemplifies the connection the artist has with the natural world, living things, other people, the planet, and the cosmos.

You can participate in a variety of classes to present your own flair. The workshops are accessible to everyone, just like the festival. Not sure where to begin?
