DUBAI: Al Marmoom Heritage Village, organised in collaboration with Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, is gearing up to host a Kite Festival on April 14 and 15.

The Kite Festival is one of the highlights of the existing line-up of cultural shows that are attracting crowds to the venue. The Heritage Village is the main attraction of the Al Marmoom Camel Race Festival, one of the GCC’s sporting events of the year.

The Heritage Village was set up for visitors to explore the Emirati way of life through handicrafts, cuisine, and music. This year, around a hundred small shops and kiosks, which have been used to recreate a carnival-like setting, will be doing brisk business.

Visitors to the Village can expect a diverse showing of cultural and music events, such as an Arabic Traditional Band, mock weddings from various cultures across the region, and international dance groups. In addition, there will be the Sand Sculpture zone, a fun fair ground, camel rides, handicraft displays, and street artists.

For those who’d like to indulge in food, the Village has organised numerous food stalls that serve authentic Emirati cuisine. Al Marmoom Heritage Village is open to the public till 18th April, and will complement the festive celebrations across Al Marmoom during the annual camel race.
