Festival spotlight on the Pearling Path

A new festival that aims to raise awareness about the Pearling Path will be held in Muharraq in December, announced the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (Baca) yesterday.

The first edition of the ‘Muharraq Nights Festival’ will be held on December 1-3 and 8-10, and will take place across the historic neighbourhoods from Siyadi Majlis all the way down to Qalat Bu Mahar.

The festival aims to promote creative development of heritage and culture, encourage people to learn more about the Pearling Path – a Unesco World Heritage Site, as well as to map the city of Muharraq.

All aspects of the pearling economy and culture, from the diver’s life to that of the grand pearl merchant, are illustrated through 16 properties, spread across a three-and-a-half kilometres pedestrian trail.

The event features artwork, food, music, a pop-up market, as well as workshops and tours.
