Abu Dhabi, 27 November 2021: In celebration of the UAE’s 50th National Day, Umm Al Emarat Park is set to welcome visitors on 2 December 2021 to an exciting line-up of cultural initiatives, fun-filled activities, delectable food and the launch of the first edition of the Park’s alfresco market: The Park Market. As a tribute to the year of the 50th, visitors can first visit Umm Al Emarat Park’s ‘Journey through Achievements’ maze that highlights 50 key milestones of the UAE in 50 years. Park visitors can immerse themselves in the maze to enrich their knowledge of the UAE and learn about the nation’s achievements across sectors. Given that the Park is a meeting place that builds on the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed, who was known for his devotion to the environment and nature, the maze includes a special focus on the late Sheikh Zayed’s vision in turning the desert green.

With the launch of the Park Market aligning with National Day, visitors can rest assured that there will be no shortage of everyone’s favorite National Day mainstays at the Park including storytelling sessions about the UAE’s history, UAE themed paintings, food and more.

The Park Market is set to take place every weekend until end of March, and brings the community together to experience a fun family day out filled with local food, goods and entertainment. Through its partnership with Silal, Abu Dhabi’s new fresh produce and agritech company, the Park Market will offer locally grown organic fruits and vegetables to further create value for local produce, uplift local farmers, and promote sustainable shopping.

Visitors can also look forward to experiencing a variety of food dining options and enjoy homemade retail items from unique hand-crafted items for the home, boutique fashion for adults and children, and bespoke jewelry. Artists, designers, and local talents are showcasing their artistry and family-friendly entertainment as well as fitness and wellness classes on the Park Market calendar to make sure there’s lots of fun for everyone to go around!

Rasha Kablawi, Head of Umm Al Emarat Park’s Corporate Affairs and Communication Department said: “We are very excited to mark the UAE’s 50th National Day at the Park and celebrate the nation that we all call home with a variety of activities that reflect the achievements of the nation and the culture of its people.”

Kablawi added: “Umm Al Emarat Park has long been a meeting place for the community of Abu Dhabi, hosting some of the capital’s most anticipated outdoor events year after year. At the forefront of our rich event calendar is the launch of our very own “Park Market.”  We look forward to welcoming guests from all backgrounds and we are confident that the Park Market will delight visitors of all ages through its various family-friendly entertainment while promoting sustainable shopping through its all-organic approach.”
