Riyadh shone like never before with the launch of Noor Riyadh, from the darkness of COVID-19 the festival brought light to the world, joy to people of Riyadh, and put a global spotlight on the city. With over 300K visitors we felt the cheerfulness that the festival brought to the city of Riyadh and it’s people.

We believe this initiative will have a profound and positive effect on enriching the lives of citizens, residents and visitors alike, bringing together a global community which sparks creative expression and creates an inclusive culture.
