Annual Omani Cultural Evening, 2017

Thursday, August 17, 2017

On Thursday, 17 August, SQCC hosted our annual Omani Cultural Evening to celebrate Omani culture and share a taste of Oman with Washington, DC.

This year, SQCC welcomed over 350 guests to our Cultural Center to learn about Oman through our permanent cultural exhibition, our seafaring exhibition "From Sinbad to the Shabab Oman: A Seafaring Legacy," and through a variety of fun activities.

The event featured live music, food tasting, Omani coffee and dates, henna, and Arabic calligraphy. Guests had the chance to experience Omani culture first hand while crafting their own Omani kumas and khanjars. Participants paired their new items with other traditional Omani clothes and took photos at our selfie station.
