Your Guide to Garangao Festivities in Qatar in 2023

Garangao is a Ramadan tradition that is widely celebrated by children across Qatar and the Gulf region. Thought to have originated from Qatar's pearl-diving traditions, this time of the Holy Month is pretty special for the little ones.

Garangao celebrations are usually held in different venues in Qatar around the middle of Ramadan, where children wear a traditional brightly coloured costume, and carry a bag which is then filled with candies from neighbours, families and friends. 

Here is a list of the spots hosting Garangao celebrations in Doha this year:
