Al Hosn Festival immerses visitors in a celebration of Emirati culture, appealing to all five senses with a rich dose of UAE heritage. From delicious authentic dishes and local perfumes to interacting with the habitat’s animals and enjoying musical performances and art, the festival embodies the essence of the beloved United Arab Emirates.

On every festivalgoer’s to-do list should be: “Pick up a UAE-themed item.” Not only to support local businesses and entrepreneurs but to show some love for the incredible country and commemorate the visit.

Emirati Fashion Statement
Infuse your wardrobe with symbols of UAE heritage that not only enhance your style but also set you apart from mainstream fashion. Consider a tote bag from The Noor Creative, an ideal choice for practical shoppers as it could be your sustainable shopping bag, work lunch sack, or grab-and-go gym tote.

Alternatively, make a bold statement with a pair of loud and proud socks to add a splash of colour to a minimalist wardrobe. Animal lovers could grab some with camels or oxen on them, while foodies can go for those with Laban Up, Chips Oman, or hot sauce prints with a hint of nostalgia.
