Syrup team's participation in the second Citrus Festival in Alula
[RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA, January 2023]
Cultivated back in the first century BCE by the Nabatean civilization, the oasis of Hegra has been the center of AlUla’s citrus produce. With over 200,000 citrus trees providing around 29 varieties of citrus, this oasis is a marvel on its own.
Celebrating the heritage and rich history of the oasis, the Royal Commission in AlUla launched the Citrus Festival back in 2022. The festival included a range of activities and exhibits from markets that showcased the local vendors of products that incorporated the citrus from the land to live music shows and culinary exhibits of the best chefs using the citrus straight from the crops to create incredible dishes.
We took immense pride in participating the festival in its second year, offering our incredible artists and musicians as part of the entertainment activities. Our team had the pleasure of exploring the event and the beauty it offers as well as be a part of its success. We extend our gratitude to RCU for the great opportunity and hope to be a part of future endeavors.
