The Kids Festival 2018

Here’s the lowdown on the kids edutainment festival and the Diaper Olympics

The Kids Festival 2018

A first-of-its-kind dedicated kids festival will take place for the next four days, so that’s your weekend with your bursting-with-energy-kids sorted. The Kids and Schools Edutainment Festival is a brand-new event that celebrates kids in every way possible, from family-friendly entertainment to thrilling activities. Your kids can run around in Doha’s current wonderful weather and when they’re exhausted, grab a bite to eat from one of the food outlets at the festival.

Parents will have the opportunity to interact with several schools that will be present at the festival showcasing their range of facilities, services and unique propositions for children. The festival will additional have opportunities for children and their parents to experience the various food and beverage outlets, kids clothing pop-up stores, international franchises, toys and games and a bunch of other fun stuff. The Hotel Park will basically transform to a one-stop-shop for all the entertainment needs of children, for four days.

There are several zones across the location – a big wall on site for children to paint on, an arts and crafts zone where children will get to try their hands at street arts and crafts, green vegetables zone that will teach gardening and encourage kids to eat healthy greens, a fruit zone and a handmade market. We’re also excited (in a cute way) for the diaper Olympics, which is a contest for the best sport kid. Just imagine dozens of diapered babies crawling across for a chance to secure the coveted title. If you hear a loud “aww”, you know it’s us. See you there.
Free. Open daily 3pm-11pm. Feb 28 to March 3. Hotel Park, Corniche Street. For details on the schedule: www.fourandonegroup.com/kids-festival/timetable.php.
