ABU DHABI, 21st March, 2018 (WAM) — One of the most highly-anticipated events in the country’s entertainment and community calendar, the Mother of the Nation Festival will open tomorrow, and will run until 31st March 2018.
Taking place at the Abu Dhabi Corniche, the third edition of the annual event, organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, DCT Abu Dhabi, will offer a wide variety of events with more than 100 workshops, performances, and activities for the entire family to enjoy.
Paying tribute to the living legacy and progressive vision of ‘the Mother of the Nation’, H.H.

With last year’s event having welcomed more than 197,000 guests, this year’s edition is set to see a record number of visitors. The four zones promise something for everyone to enjoy; from hands-on workshops and interactive demonstrations to art exhibits and an array of musical, entertainment and comedy performances.
