Dubai City Fair will celebrate the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday with special free events open to the public.
The world’s largest fairground reopened its doors on Saturday, inviting the public to visit some of its most famous attractions.
Restaurants have also reopened for guests, who can enjoy delicious menus in between taking part in special celebrations commemorating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad from Friday to Sunday, including spiritual narrations, performances and projections.
The evening festivities will run from 6.15pm to 9pm and feature Al Malid performances. Al Malid is the art of religious singing and is considered one of the most popular traditional art forms that embody the culture and values of the UAE and are rooted in Arab and Islamic heritage.
Historically, Al Malid has been associated with religious and social events and has contributed to strengthening the structure of local communities.
Al Wasl Dome, the world’s largest 360-degree projection, will also be lit up with a special show for the occasion and guests will be able to enjoy traditional Emirati dance groups.
Expo City Dubai is a car-free site and visitors can walk in public areas for free.
The Ministry of Culture and Youth will also host an event called Expressions of Malid at the Abu Dhabi Creative Hub at 7pm on Saturday.
The event will include songs, poems and performances expressing love for the Prophet, including Emirati and Arab Ensembles from across the region, who will participate in celebrations and perform Malid.
The free events will be held at Expo City Dubai from Friday to Sunday. More information is available at www.expocitydubai.com
