The first edition of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority’s (Dubai Culture) Hatta Cultural Nights was a huge success, attracting over 37,000 visitors and recording a 50 per cent increase in the average number of visitors in normal days over the first week.
The event, coming in line with the launch of the 25th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival and taking place in Wadi Hatta Park, witnessed an overwhelmingly positive response. Visitors enjoyed cultural, artistic, heritage, and entertainment activities, which included nightly live musical performances, a library, a souk, an exhibition of artistically painted doors, and workshop for children at Dubai Public Libraries. More than 40 youth volunteers from Hatta contributed to welcoming visitors and introducing them to the cultural and heritage activities.
The events and activities under Hatta Cultural Nights introduced visitors to the cultural fabric of Dubai, with a particular focus on Emirati handicrafts and folklore as well as interactive workshops.
