Happy Birthday, UAE…

UAE National Day is just around the corner and the whole country is gearing up for celebrations. In Abu Dhabi, there is a line-up of celebrations taking place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre for the official celebrations from Saturday, December 3.

The celebrations go on for nine whole days until Sunday, December 11. Tickets are officially on sale for the celebrations and can be purchased here. The show begins at 6pm (doors open at 3pm). Prices start from Dhs200.

The show will showcase stories across generations through performances, unique technology, and exceptional storytelling that take inspiration from the UAE’s rich culture and present-day collective ambition – a journey towards the year 2071.

Why is 2071 significant? Well, in short, the UAE Centennial 2071 was launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It is a long-term vision that extends to five decades (post-2021) to prepare the nation for future generations.

There are five main pillars of the UAE celebrations: education, joy, inspiration, invitation and motivation.
