Overview

The Maritime Heritage Festival celebrates the coast that is the soul of Abu Dhabi. Over centuries, a culture and a city developed in harmony with the sea. At the heart of the country's history are the people who fished, pearled, traded and thrived. By celebrating the lives and livelihood that grew from our coast, the festival helps to protect its future.

The festival is rooted in Abu Dhabi’s traditional community of sailors, tradespeople and craftspeople, bound by their belonging to the sea.

It will transport you back in time, through authentic performances, exciting activities and immersive experiences. Be ready to get greeted by the shouts of souk vendors, scents of freshly grilled fish and warmth of the elders’ storytelling!
