Events Around Amman

Wondering what sort of things are happening soon? Maybe you're interested in a family outing, or just something different for a change. We've been looking around and these events in Amman (with links, of course!) caught our eye.

-December 3: Wadi Maen Hiking and Canyoning trip
This full-day event includes meals and even a chance to take a dip in the hot springs. There are trails for different levels of participants, so even those who have never hiked before can enjoy themselves. The program promises beautiful views, dancing, and lots of fun.

-December 4-10: 3rd Annual Amman Stand-Up Comedy Festival
Need a little laughter in your life? Buy tickets to a night of this festival, which offers a line up of comedians bound to keep you in stitches. The two hour shows are held in Al Hussein Cultural center in Ras El Ein.

-December 5-8: The Family Library
This book festival offers books for as little as 350 fils in various subject matters including culture, history, and children's books in order to support reading and family libraries throughout Jordan. The event takes place in the city's governorate in the National Library Department. And it isn't just in Amman--the fair is also being offered at Ministry of Culture centres across Jordan. It's a great way to stock up on books and teach your family the importance of reading.

December 15- Amman Symphony Orchestra presents A New Night with Waltzes
Listen to the sweet sounds of classical music as played on the viola, including such seasonal fare as the Nutcracker and other classics. This also takes place at the Al Hussein Cultural centre.

December 18 - The Children's Museum's Annual Christmas Party
Bring your children to greet Santa, participate in crafts activities, sing seasonal songs and meet other children their age. Check out the full list of events at the Children's Museum to get your children involved in educational fun.

Have a fun December!
