Fireworks in Abu Dhabi for Eid Al Adha

Yas Island along with the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), will be hosting a fireworks display for Eid Al Adha this July. The spectacular firework displays will take place on the first three nights of Eid Al Adha 2021 at 9pm, from the Yas Bay waterfront.

The Yas Island Eid Al Adha firework displays are also FREE to watch and enjoy - so you can sit back and watch the dazzling display without paying a Dirham.

The festive display will also be livestreamed on Yas Island’s social media for everyone to watch remotely, as gatherings are not allowed as part of the island’s Covid-19 precautionary measures.

According to astronomers, Eid Al Adha may likely fall on either Monday, July 19 or Tuesday, July 20, which could signal a six-day public holiday. The actual date will be confirmed in the week.

What is Eid Al Adha?

Eid Al Adha means 'Festival of the Sacrifice' or 'Feast of the Sacrifice'. The Islamic holiday marks the date when the prophet Ibrahim was commanded by Allah to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, to show his devotion and obedience to God.

The Islamic holiday also marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and follows Arafat Day, which occurs just ahead of the Eid Al Adha festival.
