The Peninsula reports that this year there will be a private tent for women and new competitions and prizes for visitors.

Qatar National Day will take place on Dec. 18, which marks the date in 1878 when Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani unified the tribes of the peninsula.

According to organizers, this year’s theme is “We are tamers of difficulties,” which reflects the changing times.
