UAE Al Dhafra Camel Festival

The Al Dhafra Camel Festival has something for everyone; there are dedicated special shows for ‘Asayel’(pedigree) and ‘Majahim’(dark-skinned) camels, and there’s also the well-known camel beauty contest. Expect a traditional souq, too, along with a camel auction and various contests for traditional handicrafts, poetry, date packaging and photography.

This yearly festival that is held under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy commander in chief of the UAE armed forces, is somehow the joining link between the generations in an ever-changing social environment, and an occasion to celebrate heritage within the young generation who lives in a globalized society open to the cultures of the world.
