Sana'a Summer Festival
Date: all through June
Quite a popular tourist summer fair, this event is all about the lifestyle in Sana'a. Held around the Bab al-Yemen in the Old City Area, the Summer Festival is a lively display of color, food, and folk dance.
The main attractions are put up near the Bab al-Yemen, including craft and souvenir stalls, and kiosks selling local cuisine at discounts.
Secondary events are held at public parks and squares, and even streets, around the city. These include art exhibitions, swings and rides for children, and displays of women’s handicrafts.
Al-Sabeen Park holds a free workshop for children and youth where they can learn the basics of art from youthful, up-and-coming artists around Sana'a.
