The first edition of the Ramadan Book Fair will be held at Souq Waqif from April 8 to 16, according to the Ministry of Culture.

The book fair will also feature 35 publishers from nine countries: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, India, and Australia. The event is a follow-up to the Doha International Book Fair, with the goal of promoting books and encouraging reading in Qatar.
It also aims to support Qatari publishers by marketing books and boosting their readership, taking advantage of the holy month's atmosphere to promote true cultural values through developing knowledge and celebrating Qatar's heritage.
Cultural and religious events and activities, theatrical performances, and a variety of children's activities will all be part of the book fair.
