Festivals & Heritage



Al Hosn Festival

AL HOSN FESTIVAL is a new and unique cultural experience that reflects and reimagines Abu Dhabi’s heritage and dynamic culture, right where its story started and continues to evolve. This event returns to reignite the energy of culture shared in person.

Here the past, the present and the future are in constant dialogue connecting Abu Dhabi’s historic traditions to its contemporary and newly emerging cultures. Presenting art, design, dialogues and performances, alongside traditional crafts, historic narrations and reenactments, AL HOSN FESTIVAL is the heart that protects, celebrates and nurtures the lineages of inspiration which link all of Abu Dhabi’s creative communities.

Over ten days, this multidimensional experience–spanning art, design, cuisine, discussions, recounts and performances–presents a new and vibrant perspective on culture in Abu Dhabi.

Join us to enter Abu Dhabi’s culture and become part of its ever-evolving possibility.
