Katara is a cultural village in Doha, Qatar. It is located on the eastern coast between West Bay and the Pearl and spread over 1,000,000 square meters.

It was soft-opened in October 2010 during the Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF), that it has hosted ever since, and TEDxDoha. Many Qatari organisations have their offices in Katara. These include the Qatari Society for Engineers, Qatar Fine Arts Society, Visual Art Centre, Qatar Photographic Society, Childhood Cultural Centre, Theatre Society and Qatar Music Academy.
