Aldar launches new weekend programmes at its key destinations Al Dana Weekend 13th-15th April & Reem Weekend 20th-22nd April

  Residents and visitors to Abu Dhabi during April will now be able to enjoy two new waterside weekend attractions in some of the City’s most desirable destinations, courtesy of Aldar Properties, Abu Dhabi’s leading listed property development, investment and management company.

Al Dana Weekend will take place on Al Dana Island within Al Raha Beach from 13th-15th April, and will be followed by Reem Weekend which will take place from 20th-22nd April alongside Reem Island’s new canal. Both events are free, and open to the public from 5pm-11pm.

Inspired by the vibrant colours and carefree waterside holiday atmosphere of Santorini, Al Dana & Reem Island Weekends will bring together shopping, music, sport, entertainment and food.

Organic food producers and food trucks will provide visitors with a wide variety of international and local cuisines. This will be complemented by street performances, live mural painting as well as adventure and sporting activities such as parents and kids yoga, climbing walls, and trampolines. For children, a dedicated kids zone, farm and beach play area, will be on offer. A pop up market will feature vintage goods, fashion, arts and crafts, eyewear and beauty. Al Dana Weekend will also include an art exhibition that showcases the work of local talent. Competitions and prize givings will run throughout both weekends.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, Chief Development, Aldar Properties PJSC said: “Al Dana and Reem Weekends will really help to showcase the waterside lifestyle that we are seeking to create in our master planned communities on Al Raha Beach and Reem Island. Both weekends will enable residents and visitors alike to come together and enjoy a wide range of activities from food to music, fashion to adventure.”

Both Al Dana Weekend and Reem Island Weekend support Aldar’s destination development strategy, which aims to raise the standard of living for all people living and visiting the Emirate through the creation of vibrant, mixed-use communities and the provision of a diverse range of housing choices.

Al Dana is a centrepiece of Al Raha Beach, and close to Aldar HQ, with all landscaping, canal scaping, road networks now complete, along with active utilities to allow for plot handovers. Third party developers are actively submitting designs for plots on Al Dana, aiming to secure NOCs from Aldar to allow them to start work.

Reem Island is adjacent to the central business district on Al Maryah Island, and is also five minutes away from the city centre, offering convenient access to world-class facilities and hotels nearby, including the Rosewood Hotel, Four Seasons, Galleria Mall, Cleveland Clinic, and Saadiyat Island.
