JBR set for UAE National Day celebrations


Over 1,000 UAE flags and various traditional Arabic decorations will be distributed along the 1.2km promenade.

Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), Dubai’s premier beachfront destination by Dubai Retail, will shine the spotlight on the UAE’s heritage with a series of themed cultural activations during its second #WOWJBR festival.

Coinciding with a five-day country-wide public holiday to mark the UAE’s 48th National Day celebrations, JBR will honour the nation’s unique Arabian culture with Ayala dance performances, a traditional calligrapher penning visitors’ names on take-home scrolls and a falconer offering passers-by a memorable photo opportunity with a striking falcon – the country’s national emblem.

More than 1,000 UAE flags and various traditional Arabic decorations will be distributed along the 1.2km promenade, which will be home to multiple Majlis areas where visitors can relax and recharge with traditional Arabic coffee.

Starting from 6.30pm on Dec.2, 2019, UAE National Day activities on The Walk at JBR are free of charge and suitable for all members of the family.
