Jeddah Season Receives A Ground-Breaking 2 Million Visits in The First Month

The COVID-19 pandemic led to the ban of public activities in Saudi Arabia but Jeddah Season is now back in full force. The festival amassed 2 million visits in the first month only.

Crowds have swarmed to the 60-day season, which began on May 2, to experience the daily international musical and cultural acts. During the first three days of the event, over 200,000 people attended.

According to Arab News, the season has also piqued the interest of the city's expat families, who are mostly from Pakistan, India, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. They've been eager to see the variety of musical and entertainment performances, some of which were produced specifically for the Jeddah Season.

It's hardly surprising, according to Abdullah Al-Dousi, a Jeddah-based librarian, that the Jeddah Season reached these record numbers. “The big number confirms the historical, cultural and recreational features of the coastal city. It also stresses the high position of the Bride of the Red Sea (Jeddah) on the regional tourist map,” he told Arab News.

The Jeddah Season organizes various events for all tastes and ages in 9 zones: Jeddah Yacht Club, Jeddah Art Promenade, Jeddah Superdome, Al-Jawhara Stadium, Jeddah Pier, Prince Majed Park, City Walk, Al-Balad, and Jeddah Jungle are among the zones.

A month before it kicked off, another national festival, Riyadh Season, received 15 million visits including locals and visitors from all over the world. We can't wait to see what Jeddah Season has in store for us in the following months.
