Spearheaded by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi), EidFest Abu Dhabi was conceived to be THE stand-out Eid festival for visitors and a notable celebration for tourists and residents alike.

 With a mandate to attract visitors from within the Emirates and the GCC, EidFest Abu Dhabi is a co-ordinated multi-stakeholder initiative pulling together a range of traditional activities, attractive offers, attractions and events to create a single ‘destination festival’ product which can become the benchmark for Eid celebrations.

 All Eid-related and pre-existing activities will come together under the unified EidFest Abu Dhabi brand, with contributors being supplied with artwork and branding elements to bring the biannual festival’s ‘Our Eid. Your Eid’ theme to life. A region-wide marketing and PR campaign will support the event to take Abu Dhabi’s noted culture of hospitality to as wide an audience as possible.
