Al Khor Mall, situated on the northeast coast of Qatar, is holding its first-ever food festival titled, the ‘Festival of Flavours’ to celebrate and showcase the various options available within the mall for “great gastronomic experiences” for visitors from all around Qatar.
The festival runs until October 15.
In conjunction with the Festival of Flavours, there will be a series of weekend activities and contests that are “inventive yet familiar, as the festival will stay true to its name by shining the spotlight on various flavours, food photography and culinary workshops”, according to a press statement from LuLu Hypermarket Qatar, which manages Al Khor Mall.
One of the biggest attractions of the ‘Festival of Flavours’ is special and exclusive promotion being offered by the malls’ F&B tenants. Not only are they offering special deals but, under a ‘Dine & Win’ campaign, they also provide four winners with a chance to receive gift vouchers worth QR2,500 each – making it QR10,000 worth of gift vouchers from LuLu.
To win, a customer has to spend a combined total of QR50 from any of the mall food outlets. By doing, so they will get a raffle coupon from the customer service counter upon producing the bills.
The raffle draw for this will be held on October 20.
The mall is also offering a food photography contest for all food photography and Instagram lovers. To enter the contest, a customer has to take a photo of the food purchased from Al Khor Mall and upload it onto their Facebook or Instagram page with the hashtag #foodfiewithakm and tag Al Khor mall @alkhormall.
