DGDA Organizes Eid Al-Adha Festivities to Engage and Delight Diriyah Residents

As part of its commitment to strengthening bonds with the local community, the Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) is organizing a series of festive events in mosques, parks, and gardens across the city of Diriyah to celebrate Eid Al-Adha.


DGDA’s participation in the Eid Al-Adha celebrations reaffirms its commitment to engaging in social activities and events. With the residents of Diriyah as crucial partners, the Authority aims to involve them in the realization of its vision to transform Diriyah into a dynamic global cultural and tourist destination.


Diriyah will also spread the spirit of Eid by deploying a fleet of "Fun Busses" that will travel across the neighborhood and parks, bringing joy to locals and visitors alike. Additionally, DGDA gifts that will which where more than 15,000 will be distributed to residents. The buses will travel through Al-Khalidiya Park, Al-Faisaliah Park, and Jax Park during the first three days of Eid. Each evening throughout the four-day Eid Al-Adha holiday, cultural and heritage events will take place at 8:00 pm in conjunction with the local municipality, traffic authority, police department, Diriyah Hospital, and other local entities.


The Authority has also collaborated with the Ministry of Environment, Water, and Agriculture to oversee the organization of Eid meals. This collaboration helps to prioritize sustainability across Diriyah by ensuring proper waste disposal and utilization at the Diriyah abattoir.


Furthermore, DGDA will host “The Good Neighbor” initiative, which will distribute special bags for first aid kits, Eid decoration boxes, and waste collection. The goal is to increase public awareness of the significant role that family activities play in bringing Diriyah’s rich and dynamic local culture to life.
