Time to return to Expo City Dubai for a celebration of culture…

Hai Ramadan returns to Expo City Dubai over the Holy Month bringing a host of experiences the whole family will enjoy.

UAE residents and visitors will have plenty to look forward to from iftars to suhoors, an artisanal market and more cultural and traditional experiences. Official dates to be announced, but Hai Ramadan will begin on the first day of Ramadan.

Here’s what you can expect

If there is one thing you need to do during the Holy Month of Ramadan, witness an Iftar Cannon. The Iftar Cannon is an ancient tradition that started in Egypt and spread to surrounding Muslim countries. A single shot is fired at sunset to announce iftar and visitors to Expo City Dubai will be able to see this tradition taking place in front of them.

Note: A dedicated mosque in the Sustainable District will host those who want to pray.
