Festival City is family entertainment event  featuring different shows by international artists. Festival city event  began on 4th February and will continue until 5th March. The shows take place on several different stages - the Main stage, the Lake stage, Celebrities stage, Kids show zone and Luna stage. If you plan on visiting the show, you can take a picture or download their program schedule for the day from their Instagram or Facebook page, so you know what time, on which stages, what events would be taking place and be at the venue before the show begins.  If you miss a show, dont worry, the shows will repeated at a later time during the same day. It will be there on the program schedule. The flyer you get when you purchase the tickets at the entrance has the old schedule on it. But however, they would be a big poster next to the VIP ticket counter showing the current schedule.

When you enter, you will be surrounded by plenty of small shops selling clothing, jewelry,  perfume, pottery, toys, confectionary, gift items, decorative articles, lots of things. It's nice to walk around and see and even pick up something of your liking. The right end of Festival city has a children's play area and lot of restaurant food stalls with seating arrangement by the small lake next to the Lake stage. We had lunch at the Pastamania near the Lake stage. The extreme left part of Festival  city has street food and eateries, the Celebrities stage, Kids show zone and Luna stage. The remaining areas have shops laid out in rows with the Main stage for the show in the centre, rear end of the the Festival city which is noticeable as you enter. There is big map when you enter, and everything is easy to find.

Expect to be amid a big crowd as the shows have turned out to be quite popular. Car parking is right outside the Festival city or you can park at the Kuwait International fair ground parking area close to the Festival city - near hall 4 or 8 and walk it to the venue which would just take less than 5 minutes.
