Europe Day, celebrated on 9 May every year, is the National Day of the European Union. This Day celebrates solidarity and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic 'Schuman declaration' that set out the idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between European countries unthinkable. This unprecedented proposal is considered as the beginning of what is now the European Union.
On the occasion of Europe Day 2022, the Delegation of the European Union together with the embassies of 17 European Union countries in Kuwait, for the first time will hold an unprecedented and first class event to celebrate European culture and friendship with Kuwait. This public event will take place on Monday, 9 May from 20:00h to 22:30h in Al-Shaheed Park, multipurpose hall located in phase 2, across Ayyame restaurant. The event is open for the public and is free.
The event will feature live onstage performances of award winning European and Kuwaiti artists to celebrate Europe Day, as well as booths representing the European Union and European countries, where the public can discover more about the European culture, traditions, handicrafts, gastronomy, tourism and languages. European Union countries will be represented by embassies of Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechia, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
