The annual Thai Fruit Festival is set to take place this weekend, under the theme ‘The Fruit Paradise’ offering citizens and residents of Bahrain an opportunity to sample delicious fresh and dried fruits from Thailand.

The four-day festival, being held at the Thai Mart in Diyar Al Muharraq, will kick off today at 3pm, and run until Saturday.

The festival will feature more than 20 participants including Thai Mart vendors, wholesalers and retailers, showcasing their fruit-based products including personal care products, accessories, souvenirs, fresh fruit, dried fruits, desserts, and beverages.

During each of the four days, the Royal Thai Embassy will conduct a fruit carving demonstration between 3pm and 9pm. On Friday, students will participate in this demonstration, under the embassy’s ‘Fine Art’ initiative.

The festival is being organised by Vega Thai Mart Bahrain and Thailand-based Vega Intertrade and Exhibitions, in partnership with the Thai embassy and Thai Department of International Trade Promotion.
