Stay a little bit longer at Alserkal this Ramadan…
This Ramadan, our city’s cultural hub of Alserkal Avenue has created something extra special, inviting guests to celebrate cultural diversity after sunset. From Saturday April 1 to Sunday April 9, cultural stories will be celebrated and shared through screenings, poetry performances, gift exchanges, music by a handpan orchestra, and other activities.
This late-night programme will take place from 8pm till 11.30pm, with free activities for all to attend.
As Ramadan is an opportunity to connect, Stay a Little Longer will encourage visitors to engage with different cultures, and experience Ramadan through a different lens, through the eyes of other cultures.
Food is always essential, with this late-night programme honouring the integral part that food plays in connecting people from different cultures during Ramadan. Food pop-ups will be open throughout Alserkal Avenue for visitors to break their fast, with dedicated eating areas where visitors can sit and enjoy their meals. Guests can also enjoy Avenue resident Kave hosting a slow suhoor on Sunday April 5.
