UAE, Abu Dhabi: 30
September 2014: His Excellency Sheikh Sultan Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, Advisor to His Highness the Ruler of the UAE, President of the Camel Race Association and Chairman of the Higher Organizing Committee of the Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival 2014, has officially adopted the key elements and activities of the fifth edition of the Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival. The festival starts on November 20 and will run for 20 days in Al Wathba. Visitors will be captivated by a fusion of fascinating exhibitions, live interactions and innovative entertainment that brings to life the UAE’s rich heritage.  

Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival 2014 will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE (may God protect him), with the support of His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council; under the supervision of His Highness Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs.

Last year, large numbers of visitors enjoyed multiple attractions in Al Wathba area, with the successful event being held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who attended the opening ceremony alongside various Highnesses. The exhibitions included “Memories of a Nation”, which displayed ancient artifacts and historical treasures dating back 500 years ago from the desert, oasis, mountains and sea. A fifth element - the city and the state - symbolized the UAE’s modern unity under the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The festival also featured glorious performances to celebrate National Day, including a parade of over 5,000 Emiratis marching to honor the founding father and using their movements to showcase historical scenes.

The Higher Organizing Committee is continuing its meetings in an effort to finalize all the elements that will enhance the quality and diversity of the festival’s activities. A large turnout of visitors is expected, both from within the country and abroad.
