The tenth edition of Qatar International Food Festival (QIFF) has been announced, with dates and venue details revealed by Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC).
The QNTC will partner with Qatar Foundation to host the Doha’s annual food festival at Oxygen Park, located in Education City. It is the first time that the event will be held at this location. Visitors can expect a ten-day extravaganza of food, fun, and family entertainment which will run from 20 – 30 March 2019.
The Festival is Qatar’s longest-running food and beverage event and will celebrate it’s tenth anniversary this year. Organisers have promised that there will be exciting new additions to the food festival to mark the occasion.
Open to residents and visitors of all ages, the festival has traditionally been a free non-ticketed event, showcasing everything to do with food from flavours to culinary trends. The event will have food stalss operated by hotels, restaurants, and local food businesses.

This year, residents and visitors from all over the world attending QIFF will get a chance to explore the sustainable and landscaped Oxygen Park, also known as the ‘green lungs of Education City’. Visitors will also be able to make use of the other facilities within the area such as Qatar National Library, Education City Mosque (the Minaretein building), the Qur’anic Botanic Garden, and the artisan Torba Farmers Market.
As part of their commitment to support local business, the organisers have dedicated 15% of the food stalls to talented entrepreneurs and local small and medium-sized businesses. QIFF is a spectacular event for food businesses to introduce their food and beverage offerings to the market.
