WELCOME

Al Hosn Festival is a new cultural experience that brings to life the themes of heritage, art and culture in heart of the capital city.

Over 8 days, this multi-dimensional experience features artists, musicians, designers and artisans from the UAE and around the world across the landscape of the Al Hosn site. Join the Festival and discover a new perspective on culture.
