Bahrain’s debut edition of the Almond Festival concluded on a high note, registering a sale of 4,000 kilos of the nuts.

The 10-hour-long festival held over two Saturdays (July 9 and 16) at the farmers’ market at the Budaiya Botanical Garden proved to be a massive hit among locals, residents, and visitors from across the GCC. Organised by the Municipalities and Agriculture Ministry, the maiden edition of the festival attracted a significant number of attendees, all eager to explore the wonders of this nutritious and versatile nut.

The festival showcased the products of 15 local farmers, three agricultural projects, and several productive families. Additionally, four restaurants specialising in almond-based dishes joined in to offer visitors a delightful culinary experience. From almond milk to almond-flavored pastries, the festival had it all. One of the highlights of the event was the distribution of almond saplings to visitors. This thoughtful gesture aimed to encourage individuals to plant these saplings in their own homes, thus promoting sustainability and the growth of Bahrain’s almond industry.

The festival was a resounding success, receiving overwhelming positive feedback from both participants and attendees. Not only did it provide an excellent platform for local farmers and producers to showcase their highquality products, but it also allowed visitors to immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage surrounding almonds. Given the remarkable success and the enthusiastic response from the public, authorities have announced that the festival will be repeated annually.
