The Mother of the Nation Festival, regarded as one of the UAE’s largest cultural events of its kind, is to return to the capital this year between March 22– 31.
Last year’s festival attracted more than 197,000 visitors over its 10 days.
The Mother of the Nation Festival is dedicated to H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union, and Chairwoman of the Supreme Council of Motherhood and Childhood; and is a tribute to her far-reaching inspirational values while celebrating her progressive vision and tireless contributions to society.
A series of displays, activities and performances throughout the festival will promote the importance of family coherence, with a special focus on mothers’ roles in promoting family cohesion and maintaining social values and traditions.
The festival will also utilise Miral’s new 600-metre beachfront leisure development A’l Bahar, which will be opened to the public for the first time for Mother of The Nation Festival.
