The National Festival for Heritage and Culture, known as the “Janadriyah Festival”, is held every year in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in February and March. It was launched in 1985 in March under the supervision of the Saudi National Guard Ministry.
The festival aims to emphasize the Arab-Islamic identity and the consolidation of the national heritage in all its aspects and try to preserve and preserve it to remain the same for future generations.
The leadership of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia takes great care of this festival, from the importance of the necessity of linking the contemporary cultural formation of the Saudi citizen with his rich heritage, which constitutes a large part of his country’s history.
The idea of the Janadriyah Festival came from the existence of an integrated village for the Saudi heritage, from ancient costume and tools that were used in the life of the Saudi human person more than fifty years ago in addition to the fine arts exhibitions and annual camel races that took a strong reputation at the national and regional level.
The handicrafts occupy a prominent place in the Janadriyah Festival for their high position as one of the various aspects of popular heritage, in addition to the traditional crafts that define the modern generation with its dilemmas and heritage, highlighting the features of creativity and art and working to attract visitors to the festival.
The festival, which is organized by the National Guard in Janadriyah, highlights the growing message of the National Guard civilization in the service of Saudi society, which accompanies its military mission in defending this country, its faith, security and stability.
