Qasr Al Hosn Festival attracts 120K visitors
(Qasr ak Hosn) – Nearly 120,000 people were taken on a journey of Abu Dhabi’s cultural heart when they made their way to the Qasr Al Hosn Festival, which took place in the capital from February 11th to 21st.
Over the course of the 11-day event, guests relived their memories with their friends and families as they celebrated years of Emirati heritage and identity in a setting which fully narrates the development of Abu Dhabi.
They had the rare opportunity to visit Qasr Al Hosn, the symbolic birthplace of Abu Dhabi and a valuable monument of Emirati traditional heritage, and participate in activities of culture and tradition which have helped shape the UAE today.
The Qasr Al Hosn Fort is the symbolic birthplace of the capital of the UAE dating back to the late 17th century, and had for generations housed its ruling family, Al Nahyan, as the city developed over the years.
