Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, has announced the full programme of this year’s edition of Abu Dhabi Summer Season, which will be held from 20th July to 20th August.
TCA Abu Dhabi has joined with leading UAE event organisers, partners and stakeholders to bring spectacular international events and activities to multiple venues across the emirate, and deliver a memorable summer season for both residents and overseas visitors.
Events and festivities during the Abu Dhabi Summer Season aim to attract visitors across diverse community groups, and promote an understanding of the Arabic language and culture. Families and children can benefit from the summer season line-up, where youngsters can interact with various characters during workshops and song and dance performances from popular cartoon characters, such as Tom and Jerry, and the Arabic-language Sesame Street, ‘Iftah Ya Simsim’.
Stand-up comedy, which has proven to be extremely popular during previous editions of Abu Dhabi Summer Season, will also be part of this year’s line-up. Also taking place during the month will be a Broadway-style Bollywood show ‘Balle Balle The Big Fat Indian Wedding’ in Abu Dhabi city and Al Dhafra.
To celebrate India’s 70th Independence Day, Bollywood stars, musicians, and dancers will also be performing during the summer season activities, encouraging community engagement through cultural exchange.
