Muscat and Qurum City Centre have announced their sponsorship of and participation at this year’s most anticipated Muscat Festival. Starting January 23rd until February 28th, family-focused events will be hosted at both malls, engaging the community to be part of the cultural event.

Held annually since 1998 by the Muscat Municipality, the Muscat Festival commemorates the past and present cultures and civilizations of the Sultanate. Last year, the event welcomed over a million visitors in Oman.

“In line with Majid Al Futtaim’s vision in creating great moments for everyone every day, Muscat City Centre is pleased to partner with Muscat Festival. Our commitment as sponsors demonstrates our support towards the government’s initiatives with a hope to strengthen the camaraderie among the community and the Sultanate’s tourism aspirations. In conjunction with the festival, we are also opening the doors of our newly enhanced facilities – the food court and Magic Planet - to provide more options to our guests,” said Husam Al Mandhari, Senior Mall Manager at Muscat City Centre.
