About the Festival

The Mother of the Nation Festival celebrates, commemorates and honours the inspirational values of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak.

Throughout multiple and diverse activity zones, the festival creates an entertaining and highly interactive atmosphere that welcomes families and individuals from all walks of life.

The mother of the nation festival has a number of zoned areas:


Walk beneath a canopy of giant flowers, roll around inside an inflatable sphere or tackle the challenges of Courage Mountain. The Happiness Zone invites children and families to rediscover the joy of wonder.


Dig your hands in the soil, follow a seed on its journey to becoming part of a wholesome meal, or drop from the sky on a bungee line. Enter the Progress Zone to connect with the rest of humankind and imagine an incredible future together.


Take a break and enjoy a meal in this natural, urban dining space along the shoreline.

Beach Dining offers a variety of tasteful options from food trucks, kiosks and restaurants, to be enjoyed in a brightly coloured, comfortable seating area.


The Mother of the Nation Pavilion takes visitors on a journey through time that introduces them to the inspiring accomplishments of the Mother of the Nation, HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, and the women of the UAE.


Enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many festival food vendors or in the beautiful Souq Café, and support local talent at any of the stylish retail carts spread throughout the festival.
