The new-look Souk Madinat Jumeirah will be celebrating UAE National Day with an authentic Arabian bazaar.
The adventure begins at the entrance of the Souk, where at 3:30pm, visitors will be welcomed by camels, oud players, falconry and a National Day themed florist display in the fountain. The first of two performances at the amphitheatre starts at 4pm and includes a 30-man Ayala stick dancing group, a recital of the Spirit of The Union and more. The entire performance and journey will be repeated at 6pm.
The redesigned walkways will be packed with time-honoured traditions, from lugaimat sweet-making, decorative henna application, and talli weaving, to live entertainment, all offering a modern glimpse of the past on this celebratory occasion.
For visitors who have worked up an appetite exploring the redesigned Souk, there are over 25 international venues that make up Souk Madinat Jumeirah’s restaurant portfolio.
