Christmas in Abu Dhabi: A free winter festival is coming to Yas Island

If you’re like us and you love Christmas, then your playlist may about to be playing on every speaker in Abu Dhabi very soon.

We’re talking Mariah Carey, Michael Buble, Bing Crosby, all the classics, you know the ones we mean and you’re probably already singing them (sorry).

Can’t wait until December 25 for a festive celebration?

Well, a free winter festival is coming to the city from December 11 to 15 to help get you in the mood ahead of Santa’s visit.

Yas Winter Carnival will take over Yas Gateway Park for five days of festive fun.

The free event will feature a winter market, a tree lighting ceremony, a snow zone where you can build your own snowman and singalongs to all the festive classics.

There will also be a daily fireworks show, carnival rides, a gingerbread making station, travelling entertainers and magicians and more.

All we need now is to find the perfect cheesy Christmas jumper.

Free. Dec 11-16. 2pm-11pm. Yas Gateway Park, Yas Island
