PHOTOS: The 2013 Qatar International Food Festival by Omar Chatriwala
Today is your last chance to check out the Qatar International Food Festival (renamed from the Doha Food Festival of previous years).
On at the Museum of Islamic Art Park, the grounds are sprawling compared to previous years, and between dining in the sky, snacking on the sea, walking through the numerous food stalls, or taking in the cooking and fitness demonstrations, it’s quite a spectacle.
Today’s hours are from 2pm-10pm. Vouchers are sold in QR40 increments, with a QR10 service charge – so make sure to buy more upfront if you think you’ll need them, to minimize service fees.
Also, parking at the MIA is limited, and has been closed off completely in the evenings. To avoid the hassle, park at one of the designated lots – at the Ministry of Interior building on the Corniche or a parking lot across from Al Sharq Village & Spa. A shuttle will transport you speedily to the festival. More tips here.
