1950s nostalgia at Sharjah Food Festival 2015

(Sharjah) – Heart of Sharjah is gearing up to join three other destinations in Sharjah in hosting the 9th Sharjah Food Festival, which will be organised by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Shurooq, from March 25th – April 4th.
Heart of Sharjah will participate in the Sharjah Food Festival as a main venue to reflect Sharjah’s Arab and Islamic character and its modern features that combine contemporary civilisation and the past.
The festival’s activities at Heart of Sharjah will include an old Souq designed to reflect how people were living in the 1950s in Sharjah’s traditional areas and a Bedouin Majlis where visitors will recall the way of preparing Bedouin food, such as Al Qirs, and Emirati coffee through which the visitor takes a smell of the authentic past.
