Art, music and everything in between! Qatar Tourism has announced its list of activities for the month of August – and there is something for everyone.

If you’re spending the summer in Qatar and haven’t had the opportunity to travel, don’t let the heat stop you from enjoying the various events on offer.

With just three months to go before the World Cup kicks off, Qatar is already proving to be an entertainment paradise to prepare for the global tournament.

Are you a FIFA 22 fan?

First on the list is for gaming enthusiasts.

Back-2-Back from AAMeghessib, a FIFA 22 eSports platform exclusive for PlayStation 5 in Qatar, kicked off their tournament last week and is scheduled to run until August 26th. It bears the name of Ahmed Al Meghessib, a prominent FIFA player from Qatar and a footballer.

In order to participate in the tournament, a team of two players must be formed before then competing in order to qualify ahead of the national finals. The competitive aspect is that teams need to score two goals in a row to win in 11v11 kick-off mode.

The finals tournament will take place in Doha Festival City, surrounded by crowds who will be cheering for their favorite player. First place winner will receive QAR45,000, second place will receive QAR30,000 and third place will receive QAR15,000.

Qatar Tourism is offering the prizes in the form of redeemable vouchers for use at Virgin Megastores.

Literally grab your horses

Ever thought of learning to ride a horse? Well this is your golden opportunity. Al Shaqab is currently running its summer horseback riding program through August 11 to allow all residents to brush up on the sport.

The program was created to make Al Shaqab the premier center of excellence for horses to teach and promote horsemanship as part of Qatar’s equestrian heritage – given its preeminent importance in Qatari culture and heritage.

Various options for all ages are available this month including the Summer Kids Pony Ride for children ages three to seven, Al Shaqab’s Adult Summer Activities 2022 for adults ages six to 18, Private Summer Activities for Adults and Summer Academics Equestrian Camp.

Those who like a little privacy can also enroll in the summer ladies courses from 14 years old or the private courses for adults offered by the institution. A children’s summer autism program for ages 3 to 12 is also available.

In the all-new, massive, site-specific installation, Pipilotti Rist: Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You, guests embark on a journey of self-discovery through a multimodal experience that inspires thought and wonder.

Until November, children between the ages of three and five and five and seven can take part in the art workshop “Paint Palette: Abstract Art for Children”. By creating vibrant, abstract paintings on canvas, Paint Palette enables young children to explore colour, pick up art language and recognize shapes.
