Come and join Manarat Al Saadiyat Ramadan Evenings in Abu Dhabi. This is a community event offering a wide range of unique cultural experiences during the Holy Month of Ramadan through a variety of culinary experiences, creative activities, retail opportunities, performances and workshops.

Reflecting the distinctly local aspect of an Emirati Ramadan, the evenings will create an engaging atmosphere of cultural celebration across multiple forms of artistic expression.

Enjoy Arabic/Emirati fusion cuisine in a contemporary Iftar setting, the family-friendly cultural celebration invites visitors to enjoy a Ramadan experience in a style and ambience unique to the UAE capital, through an engaging and interactive daily programme.

Performances by Bait Al Oud musicians every Friday during the festival will offer an exceptional musical flavour for the festival, while traditional crafts and workshops on skills such as ‘Talli’ embroidery, ‘Khos’ palm frond strand braiding and ‘Sadu’ weaving will provide participants the chance to engage with Emirati intangible heritage and history.

Special daily activations will include live reading of stories from the Quran every Sunday, talks on Islamic architecture every Tuesday, and poetry sessions every Saturday.

The festival programme will also include a book corner which will feature recitals by popular authors for families to enjoy from Sunday to Friday during the event, board games, vintage video games, an interactive mosaic mural as well as an interactive puppet show, a Ramadan Souq and a wide selection of dining options.

In addition, UAE artists will produce beautifully designed wood and acrylic art pieces inspired by Islamic geometrical patterns to be auctioned for charity, and a selection of artworks from the Proud Expressions Exhibition, a touring public art exhibition honouring the nation’s heroes, will also be exhibited.
