Preparations for the Mother of the Nation Festival are in their final stages, the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), announced on Thursday.
The festival will open its doors from 4pm until midnight on Sunday, March 26 and run daily until April 4, at the Abu Dhabi Corniche.
The progress of construction can be seen by pedestrians walking along the Corniche promenade. Individuals and families are gearing up to once again celebrate the one-of-a-kind Festival, starting next week.
The festival will offer four diverse activity zones alongside the Mother of the Nation Pavilion. The festival grounds are in their final stage of construction, in accordance with the established schedule.
