The Festival aims at preserving the cultural heritage of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the region, as a whole. It also seeks to preserve the Emirati popular heritage, of which Emiratis are still proud until today. The Al Dhafra Festival has also many other objectives including the stimulation of the economic activity in the Western Region, and the promotion of the Gate of the Empty Quarter, Madinat Zayed, among the lovers of heritage tourism from all over the world. As it seeks to attract more visitors to attend the various events and discover the cities of the Western Region, the Festival has turned into a special opportunity, and a renewed annual meeting between the people of the Gulf cooperation Council (GCC).
