This year, the Saudi Falcons Club is getting ready for the first ever King AbdulAziz Falconry Festival, said to be one of the largest falconry events to date. This festival is taking place from January 25th to February 3rd 2019, in the city of Riyadh. Many local falconers are scheduled to attend as well as other falconers and enthusiasts from all around the world. Although those who are foreign to the world of falconry believe it to be a very niche community, this sport of kings is still at large in almost every country, and especially in the Middle East. In this region many animals are still used as status symbols, such as those used in Ancient Rome. In fact, falconry is also deeply engrained in Saudi heritage and culture, and many modern enthusiasts intend to revive these practices on an even larger scale.
The festival will feature state of the art falcon race fields holding up to all international standards. There will also be falcon beauty competitions, interactive media displays, art installations, museum exhibits, and hands on falconry experiences held in a large area of over 32,000 square feet. Since one of the main goals of this festival is to deepen the understanding, appreciation, and continuance of Arabian traditions, the featured exhibits will focus on the biology of falcons, the history of falcons in Saudi Arabia, how to train a falcon, hunting techniques, and the progressive nature of falconry in modern times. This will truly be a magnificent event, and many will be envious of the thousands of attendees that will be present. But Luckily with Hawkeye, you don’t have to travel to the Middle East to get a true falconry experience.
