If you are someone planning to visit Oman for a vacation, make sure you check its festival calendar before going. Omani festivals are often colourful, and it will be in vain if you miss one when you are there.
The Muscat Festival
This is one of the grandest festivals that Oman celebrates during the months of January and February. If you reside at a Muscat hotel, then this magical festival that lasts for a whole month is all yours to explore and enjoy.
Typically, from mid-July to late August, the Salalah Tourism Festival takes place with many artistic cultural shows. You find all sorts of clothes stalls, game huts, circuses and much more activities here that you will love for sure.
Eid Al Adha
In Oman, the majority is occupied by the Muslim community and thus, Eid al-Fitr is one of the most important religious festivals in the country. If you stay in a popular resort like Al Falaj Hotel Muscat during your stay, you will be able to witness people in Oman arriving with their families to have meals together and spend some quality time as a part of the celebrations.
The Sultan Camel Race Cup
Camel Racing is considered one of the oldest sports in Arabia and this festival was initially formed with the goal of encouraging this sport. This is a festival that lasts a couple of days and is enjoyed by many foreign visitors as a habit.
