Al Qasba, Sharjah’s premier leisure and family destination, is inviting families to enjoy its line-up of diverse activities with its ‘Al Qasba Ramadan Nights’ that’s being held in collaboration with Art Verve.
The Ramadan programme will see a sprawling market with 20 kiosks selling fashionable clothes and accessories, handicrafts, souvenirs, art and craft stations and a buzzing kids’ play area. The bazaar will also entertain visitors with henna artists and face painting kiosks. An array of food outlets selling delicious snacks will include patisseries, juice shops and ice-cream vendors.
‘Al Qasba Ramadan Nights’ will run from May 16-25, every evening between 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., giving residents and visitors from around the world the opportunity to savour a unique cultural and community experience during the holy month.
Throughout these 10 days, Al Qasba will be in a festive mood with the main bridge across Al Qasba canal converted into a ‘tunnel of light’, a picturesque haven that fosters community engagement which is the true essence of Ramadan.
Khuloud Salim Al Junaibi, General Manager of Al Qasba, said, “With Al Qasba being a leading family tourism destination and home to many cultures, the venue has always celebrated different occasions with the public. Keeping in line with this tradition, ‘Al Qasba Ramadan nights’ will showcase the emirate’s diverse tourism offerings within a modern Arabic setting, while still retaining its Islamic values and roots.”
“The various community-oriented activities of this event will focus on the values of Ramadan such as compassion, giving and sharing, and strengthening of family bonds, as well as offering people from different cultural backgrounds a valuable insight into Emirati, Arabic and Islamic traditions,” she added.
Sumptuous international cuisines will afford visitors an amazing gastronomical experience spread across various Middle Eastern and international food and beverage outlets along Al Qasba’s walkways, both before dawn’s Suhoor and following the firing of the Ramadan cannon, which will announce the breaking of the fast at sunset’s Iftar.
Al Qasba offers state-of-the-art facilities, premium services, and hosts world-class events, which attract a huge turnout of tourists and visitors throughout the year.
