Mother Of The Nation Festival

Posted on Posted in Asia, United Arab Emirates


“The Mother of the Nation Festival celebrates, commemorates and honours the inspirational values of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak.”


The whole festival runs from March 26 – April 4, 2017.


It is along Corniche Road. It will cost you around 20 AED if you take a taxi from the Abu Dhabi bus station.


Ticket price is 20 AED.


The festival has 4 entrances and 6 different zones:



There so many activities you can do. Mostly for kids, though.


Kids can enjoy zipline, sand box, outdoor painting, big-floating balloons, and more.



There are loads of food carts and souvenir stalls.



Visitors can enjoy teepees, hammocks and a bicycle that can light up a tree.



There are 2 giant board games!!!! Which I think is really cool!



They have jugglers and a sand artist.



Who wouldn’t enjoy dinner by the beach?



They also have “Chef Challenge” where 2 chefs will compete and the audience will be the judge.



And the most unique things are the fireworks display that can be controlled by kids’ hand gestures, colorful containers and a guy that plays music using tubes and slippers.



If you can find time today until Tuesday, please make sure you pay it a visit. You and your kids will love it!


The festival is open from 4PM to 12MN.
