AL HOSN FESTIVAL is a new cultural experience that reflects and reimagines Abu Dhabi’s heritage. The first edition of this event brings together historic traditions, contemporary culture, and newly-emerging artistic perspectives across the cultural landscape of the Al Hosn site.
Presenting art, design and performances alongside traditional crafts, AL HOSN FESTIVAL celebrates the lineages of inspiration which link all of Abu Dhabi’s creative communities. The first event of its kind in the region, AL HOSN FESTIVAL is a space for new cultural conversations to begin and a platform for new artistic possibilities.
Over eight days, this multidimensional experience – spanning art, design, cuisine and performances – presents a new perspective on culture in Abu Dhabi.
Hands-on workshops run by top regional sneaker designers offer you the chance to take part in the process of design, production and customisation.
