this ramadan, you can enter Expo City Dubai’s ‘Hai Ramadan’ for FREE

Expo City Dubai will host a Ramadan event that will provide a window into the customs of the holy month in the UAE and elsewhere. The city promises a “real celebration of the holy month with an attractive environment, wonderful food, and thrilling activities” during “Hai Ramadan,” which will take place until April 25.

And now, Expo City recently announced that visitors can enter ‘Hai Ramadan’ event for free, this Ramadan. This means you can celebrate Ramadan festivities, which include plenty of food stalls, activities, entertainment and a night market- all for FREE! Entry to Hai Ramadan, including the Al Wasl show and sports activities, will be free. However, visitors will be charged for workshops and games. In addition, ‘Hai Ramadan’ also hosts communal iftars and corporate iftars, which have to be reserved and paid for in advance.

Evoking nostalgia and giving glimpses into Ramadan traditions in the UAE and beyond, Expo City Dubai’s ‘Hai Ramadan’, running from until 25 April 2023, promises to be a true celebration of the holy month with an enchanting atmosphere, delicious food and exciting activities.

What can you do at ‘hai ramadan’?

Hai Ramadan will take visitors on a cultural journey where they can share unique experiences from across the Islamic world. From regional cuisine to international gastronomy and enticing street food, visitors will also have the chance to indulge in an array of food and beverages, reflecting the joy of breaking fast and sharing a meal with a loved one during the holy month. 

Worshippers will be able to access a dedicated mosque on site for all prayers, including Isha and the later Taraweeh and Tahajjud prayers. After the Taraweeh prayer, storytellers will evoke the ancient Arab art of Hakawati – narrating folktales and stories of adventure, culture, religion and morality. Additionally, Expo City Dubai’s very own Misaharati – classic Ramadan figures who would wake up their communities with drumming and singing, traditionally before dawn, to drink water and partake in Suhoor – will celebrate the experience of this age-old tradition throughout the day.

Al Wasl Plaza will offer a family-friendly theatrical show by Expo 2020 Dubai’s official mascots, Rashid and Latifa, and children of all ages are welcome to join workshops and games to learn about elements of Emirati culture and the values of Ramadan, such as kindness, generosity and compassion. To promote a healthy lifestyle, Expo City Dubai will host sports tournaments for adults with a dedicated zone that will feature games, fitness and wellness activations for people of all activity levels. A full schedule of events will be published nearer the time.

The festivities – an experiential interpretation of hai, an Arabic word with a dual meaning of ‘neighbourhood’ and ‘welcome’ – will run for more than 50 days, beginning on 3 March, the weekend prior to the UAE’s traditional celebration of Haq Al Laila, in preparation for the start of Ramadan two weeks later.
