Yas Marina welcomes families and friends for three consecutive fun-filled evenings, culminating in spectacular firework displays. While the DJ sets the mood along the promenade, guests can explore children’s inflatable fun, engaging carnival games, food trucks and the night market. See you there.

Families will have loads of fun on the waterfront promenade throughout the Eid celebrations. While fairy lights and giant lit up decorations will set the festive scene, the evenings are complimented by live carnival games, a night market and live DJ, presenting a dynamic energy and ambiance for visitors.
Yas Marina is open to the public with no entrance fee. A small fee will be charged for the children’s activities (Activities: 7pm until 11pm).

Don’t miss the fireworks. Kicking off every evening, the promenade offers great views and a friendly-family environment, lying down on the grass near IRIS restaurant, sipping a drink at one of the seven outlets or just walking along the promenade overlooking the yacht marina and the iconic Yas Viceroy hotel.
Diverse dining options for foodies
The lively destination presents a selection of restaurants with cuisines from all the corners of the world for every taste.
