Frequently Asked Questions about Eid

Eid literally means “holiday” or “celebration”. Islam has two main Eid holidays: Eid AlFitr, which celebrates the end of Ramadan, and Eid AlAdha, which occurs right after the Hajj (pilgrimage).

Eid AlAdha is a four-day holiday known as the “Greater Eid” compared to Eid AlFitr, which is three days long and known as the “Smaller Eid”.

Eid is a festive time in AlUla, with celebrations across the city for both Eid AlFitr and Eid AlAdha. From parades and music to beautiful lights and small giveaways, all ages are welcome to join in the merriment.

While some businesses in the city centre may close for Eid, the restaurants and shops in Old Town, AlJadidah and the Oasis have extended opening hours. Please see our Food and drink page for individual restaurant timings.

Getting to AlUla is easy. There are several international and domestic flights throughout the Eid holidays from flydubai, Qatar Airways, Saudia and flynas. Or consider a scenic drive through the mountains for a road trip you'll never forget.

Join in with the spirit of the occasion and greet people with Eid Mubarak meaning ‘Blessed Eid’.
