The Gathering implies a welcoming get-together kind of environment where families & friends can shop, admire art, eat and be entertained for a full productive day to remember. We at The Gathering provide a community-based ground for passionate people to showcase their work featuring a range of all local art, hand-picked shops and artisan food. Our goal is to attract and retain the finest Saudi minds, provide them with amazing opportunities, and to present unique businesses and support the amazing talents behind them.
The event takes place multiple times a year, the time where families prepare themselves for an outing as the beautiful weather arrives. We are proud to say that The Gathering is part of the Saudi Vision 2030 and under the umbrella of newly established the General Entertainment Authority, which envisions a diversified local economy, the addition of jobs for a growing population, and the creation of more cultural and entertainment showcases in the Kingdom.
