2018 ‘Bahrain For All’ festival date announced

More than 55,000 people from 40 local and expat communities will take part in the upcoming ‘Bahrain For All’ festival which will be held on Friday, March 30th at Prince Khalifa bin Salman Park in Hidd. Performances representing the Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Filipino, Jordanian, Ethiopian, Thai, Bangladeshi, and Egyptian communities, among others, will be showcased for visitors. Special needs children from RIA Institute and Hidd Rehabilitation Centre will also put on special performances.

Tamkeen is the strategic partner of the 6th edition of the festival, which will focus on bridging gaps between Bahrain’s communities and supporting local entrepreneurs, with over 250 market stalls dedicated to Bahraini businesses and productive families. It will also offer a range of live shows, including performances by local DJs and emcees.

Organiser Nivedita Dhadphale said: “This year, we’re offering a special platform to promote Bahraini entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurism has become a valuable part of Bahraini identity and self-image, as there are many small businesses that serve as a source of innovation and growth for the economy. By ensuring their success, we can improve our standards of living and contribute towards forming a prosperous society. We are happy to be able to give them such an opportunity where they can market and sell their products as well as engage more closely with our diverse communities.”
