HORSH BEIRUT FESTIVAL 2018

Event

The Horsh Beirut Festival is a public event held each summer in Beirut’s largest green park bringing together people of all backgrounds and age groups to enjoy the green scenery and landscape and partake in a variety of free cultural, artistic and recreational activities.

The event aims to give people the opportunity to access the city’s formerly closed public park which before the war was a place for gathering, festivals and traditions open for everyone.

This year’s festival will take place over two days, from 23 to 24 June 2018 from 15.00 to 22.00 and is organized by ASSABIL, Friends of Public Libraries, an NGO promoting free and unlimited access to information, and the Heinrich Boell Foundation, Beirut Office, a political foundation promoting informed democratic opinion, socio-political commitment and mutual understanding.
