The Children's Festival, organized by Yunus Emre Institute in cooperation with the Directorate General of Youth Services of the Ministry of Youth and Sports and Ankara University's Children Culture Implementation and Research Center, was held in Doha, the capital of Qatar.

During the festival, held between May 4 and 5 with support from the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Qatar and the Turkish school run by the Embassy, the kids of Doha had fun to their hearts' content in the street games and workshops prepared for them.

With its motto "Kids, Let's Go Out," the Children's Festival aims to introduce kids to the traditional street games so that they can get away from technology and improve their physical and mental skills, and the next festival will be held in Madrid, the capital of Spain, between May 18 and 19.
