Al Maryah to mark National Day with festive specials

Al Maryah Island, a leading business and lifestyle destination in Abu Dhabi, is celebrating the UAE’s 46th National Day on December 1 and 2 with a colourful display of fireworks, live cultural performances and festive activities.

Al Maryah Island’s stunning waterfront Promenade will be transformed to resemble the era of the union’s early days. Overall giving a traditional look and feel, the perimeter will feature architectural installations of traditional Arabic houses (Barajeel) to reflect the rich Emirati heritage of the UAE. Situated alongside the Promenade, the luxury shopping and dining destination, The Galleria, will host families and friends with true Arabic hospitality, serving traditional Gahwa (Coffee), dates, and more, as they relax in an authentic Arabic setting.

Visitors of all ages are welcome to enjoy live cultural performances, food trucks, traditional photo booths, and live stage performances from Ayalla, Habriya, and Yollaband. To ignite the celebrations, guests will enjoy the colourful fireworks display on the waterfront.

One of the highlights includes a fun photo booth allowing visitors to get a taste of being a local Emirati dressed in an Abaya or Kendora, giving them a fun keepsake to take home or share on social media. Other activities include henna and sand artists, caricature drawings, and calligraphy.

The public event will feature a dedicated kids' area that includes UAE flag and Burqa making, camel sculpturing, face painting and National Day-themed cookie decorating. A selection of prominent UAE companies, who are also Al Maryah Island tenants, have joined forces to sponsor the occasion and highlight their support for the celebrations.

Ali Eid Al Mheiri, executive director, Mubadala Real Estate and Infrastructure, said: “Al Maryah Island is proud to be celebrating the 46th UAE National Day. We look forward to welcoming visitors from Abu Dhabi and beyond to mark this very special occasion, and hosting a truly memorable celebration.”

I am honoured to be celebrating this day with Al Maryah Island community, reflecting our unity, progress and national sovereignty.”

We use UAE National Day to highlight our achievements and to honour our history and heritage. The Spirit of the Union galvanizes all citizens and residents of the UAE and I would like to congratulate everyone on this special occasion.”
