An­nual fes­ti­val re­turns in the West­ern Re­gion

There’s a good chance you’ve eaten your fare share of dates dur­ing Ra­madan, but if you want to try a few more, then head to the Liwa Date Fes­ti­val. Now in its 12th year, this event in the West­ern Re­gion runs from July 20 to 30 and is ex­pected to at­tract 70,000 vis­i­tors. Dates are big busi­ness in the UAE and there are 220 prizes up for grabs and a prize pot of around Dhs6 mil­lion for the re­gion’s date farm­ers. As well as buy­ing dates, vis­i­tors can also check out a mar­ket sell­ing tra­di­tional Emirati goods.
