The annual Al Awafi festival will commence on January 16th in Ras Al Khaimah, the organisers have confirmed.
Over three weeks, visitors to the northern emirate will be able to engage in sporting events, take in cultural attractions and witness some esteemed cultural theatre.
Hilary McCormack, manager of RAK Tourism, commented: "The Government of Ras Al Khaimah believes cultural initiatives (such as Al Awafi Festival), reflect their commitment to promote social and family events for the people of the Emirate."
Such news could be of interest to those people interested in buying property in UAE.
And for families looking to visit the emirate in the coming month, the festival will provide games areas and play zones to keep children entertained, while police will also be on hand to provide security at the diverse events on offer.
In previous years, the event has been sponsored by Etisalat - the Emirates telecommunications corporation.
