It’s time to make your way to the dunes.
Desert adventurers, pack your bags and buckle up for a road trip. Liwa Village is making a banging return, promising an immersive experience that blends Emirati traditions with modern flair.
Taking place from 8 to 31 December, the Liwa Village festival promises 24 days of non-stop excitement. This event is divided into seven zones and offers a unique experience for culture vultures and families.
First up is the Souk, your go-to traditional Emirati marketplace. Here, you’ll get rooftop views that are like a scene straight out of a movie as Kabab Zaman Awal and Harees Al Fareej serve up culinary wonders. Erth has got a lineup of foodie delights with a special touch of Emirati meals and Arabic-inspired patisserie.
At the Oasis, the desert’s charm mixes with modern elegance. Prepare for a feast because BB Social Dining, Mattar Third Culture Barbecue, Slaw, Seekh, and The Uncommon bring their A-game with mouthwatering bites. And if you’ve got a soft spot for luxury fashion and beauty, Elevnish and Odela & Co and Feathers will take you on a journey into the heart of Emirati traditions.
The Valley is a sustainable sanctuary where Salt sprinkles culinary magic and tempts your taste buds with the juiciest burgers and ice creams in the emirates.
Next up is the Carnival, the Disneyland of Liwa Village. This place is like an amusement park. Get ready for some serious fun with games like Pyramid Smash, Rebound, Blockbuster, Lobster Pot, Spin a Wheel, and Hook a Bag. With a 5D Cinema, Playneo, and two electrifying Racing Simulators, it’s a thrill-seeker’s paradise.
The Pavilion is like a cauldron of creativity and innovation, brewing up the latest trends in technology and entertainment. If you’re a gaming buff, hold onto your controllers because the Digital Station by PUBG is your ultimate digital playground.
Throughout December, the Main Stage will be a hotspot of talent, showcasing the unique Arabic stylings of local artists. Kicking off 9 December is the Saudi duo Bandar Bin Oweer and Ghareeb Al Mokhles. On 16 December, prepare for the enchanting performances of Abdulla Al Rouished and Ali Bin Mohammed. On 23 December, the desert will resonate with Saudi tunes, thanks to Abadi Al Johar and Mutref Al Mutref.
And finally, wrapping up the grand finale on New Year’s Eve, the Main Stage will see Khaled Abdulrahman, Eida Al Menhali, and Diana Haddad.
