For the 19th year in a row, the annual Al Taif Rose Festival returns stronger and better than ever, with so many amazing additions.

Spring is finally upon us. This season is the time for new beginnings and the return to the order of things. Spring marks the rejuvenation of the natural world after the cold winter months, when the flowers resprout and the animals awaken from their hibernation. Every moment is a celebration of the endless beauty that this world has to offer.

Spring also introduces the harvest season in Al Taif, the wondrous city of roses filled with a rich heritage, scenic views, and - most importantly - flowers. For the past 19 years, the Ministry of Culture has organized the most anticipated event of the year. Amid the mountains and greenery sits the evergreen Al Ruddaf Park, which is graciously hosting this year’s annual Al Taif Rose Festival. 

This year, the event is taking place from the 7th to the 14th of May, and people from all around the world are traveling to witness the region’s sensational harvest season packed into this groundbreaking festival. Here’s what you’d be missing out on if you skipped out on this year’s highly acclaimed Al Taif Rose Festival.

Starting off with the obvious – the outstanding rose displays. At one point or another, we’ve all caught a whiff of the amazing scents of the al Taif roses in the form of perfumes and oils, but what about meeting the makers of these scents firsthand? Just imagine a carpet made of over a million roses, or the world’s biggest basket of flowers consisting of over 84 thousand roses. That is just a glimpse into the wondrous world of the Al Taif Rose Festival.

The Al Taif Rose Festival offers endless beds of roses in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. From hanging flowers over your head to vast, colorful fields underneath your feet with every step you take, this spring festival offers the most perfect backdrops for your Instagram photos.

That is not all; apart from the amazing floral displays, you can also expect an amazing experience filled with interactive water and light shows, authentic local shopping stalls, and a dedicated children’s play area that allows parents to soak in the beauty of the festival and everything surrounding it without any worries.


Grab your family and friends and experience a world filled with unmatched beauty and serenity this spring at the Al Taif Rose Festival. .
