King Abdulaziz Camel Festival


The world’s biggest camel festival, held under the patronage of King Salman, has been held in Rumah, 120 kilometers northeast of Riyadh. The festival, having been founded in 1999 by a group of local Bedouin people, went on to receive support from the Saudi royal family. Due to its rising popularity it turned into a heritage festival, attracting people from across the GCC to travel to showcase their finest camels. Celebrating the culture and way of life of Saudi Arabia and Bedouin traditions, today the festival attracts about 300,000 camels and their owners. The festival will offer a lot to the Saudis and foreigners in terms of history, heritage and entertainment. On behalf of Filmmaster FabriQ produced the live coverage of the closing ceremony of the Camel Festival 2017.
