Khartoum-Sudan Events

The Riyadh Season is a city-wide celebration of the city in itself and in the larger context, Saudi Arabia and its people. Held as part of the Saudi Seasons initiative since 2019, it is one of the many initiatives taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to boost economic and tourist activity, with a focus on non-religious tourism. The event is conducted during winter across a span of five months, between October to March.
The initiative falls in line with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s Vision 2030 as Saudi Arabia moves towards a progressive future. International travellers can now easily visit Saudi Arabia as the kingdom has aimed to boost tourism through the quick and simple process of procuring an e-visa.
