A great day out that’s guaranteed to end with a bang…
The Zayed Heritage Festival is a celebration of UAE and world heritage, a collection of pavilions, parades, performances and interactive exhibitions that add up to an awesome family day out.
Currently taking place in the Al Wathba region of Abu Dhabi, there are events scheduled up to February 2021.
Visitors will find food trucks; a gigantic fountain with water display every 30 minutes; craft activities; carnival rides; laser tag; car shows; a dedicated kid’s village; horse, camel and falconry shows; sailboat races; cooking demonstrations; raffles; prize draws; and UAE heritage exhibitions.
