Abu Dhabi’s event calendar has roared back to life, and heading in to the cooler months, this year’s edition of the Mother of the Nation (MOTN) festival promises to wow you like never before.

Never-before-seen attractions, fabulous displays, incredible installations and innumerable avenues for family fun will be presented to you across an unprecedented three locations in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra. Doors will open in Al Dhafra from November 22 to 26 and in Al Ain from November 29 to December 3, followed by the Abu Dhabi Corniche’s own grand spectacle from December 8 to 31.

If you’re brand new to the MOTN festival, we can tell you this year’s edition is going to feature a superb line-up of international artists, curated retail experiences and world-renowned culinary delights as part of a host of exciting food and beverage options for you to look forward to. There’s also plenty for you and the family to do and enjoy over the month-long celebration, with hands-on workshops, interactive experiences, escape rooms, game concepts and more. For the sport lover in you or just your young ‘uns needing to release some of that endless energy, there will also be basketball showdowns, a skatepark, a skating rink and several skill-based activities that the whole family can enjoy across four themed zones: Amuse, Thrill, Indulge and Entertain.

Abu Dhabi residents eagerly await the MOTN festival every winter, which has proven to be a hit with families in the capital owing to its exciting entertainment options amid enjoyable weather. Sounds like the ideal family day out to us.
