Through events and places that inspire, excite and restore, there is something for everyone to enjoy and experience at their own pace.

Yas Island


For starters, Yas Island naturally has a wealth of exciting activities for all. Aside from the year-round theme park action and waterfront attractions, there are also plenty of events lined up.


Saadiyat Island


Situated just 15 minutes away, Saadiyat Island offers you a peek into the cultural side of Abu Dhabi. Home to Louvre Abu Dhabi’s timeless inspiration and unforgettable architecture, there is also the Saadiyat Cultural District to explore.

Nestled in the heart of the island, the space hosts several community events and exhibitions at Manarat Al Saadiyat, alongside Berklee Abu Dhabi, the pre-eminent institute of contemporary music and the performing arts.

Etihad Arena


All of the arts and culture aside, there are also plenty of action-packed events on the capital’s calendar. Having recently hosted the first-ever NBA games in the region, as well as sold-out UFC and WBA boxing title fights, families and especially children are also waiting to be enchanted by the Middle East debut of the internationally renowned Broadway show, Disney’s The Lion King musical.

For music lovers, there’s a line-up of concerts like nothing the region has ever seen. With performances by Andrea Bocelli, Post Malone, Imagine Dragons, Blackpink, Sting and John Legend among the few scheduled, it’s definitely an exciting time to be in the emirate.

Find the experience that resonates with you, and choose from the best of the best at your own pace.
