The highly-anticipated MOTN Festival is back for its ten-day extravaganza this winter

Prepare for the perfect outing for everyone at Abu Dhabi Corniche from December 9 until 18.

Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the annual MOTN Festival is back with a host of F&B pop-ups, immersive activities, and packed entertainment on the roster for foodies and festival lovers alike. 

The Foodies’ Festival


The MOTN Festival will see a range of international concepts by street food vendors across the festival’s six distinct zones. From the UK’s halal burger joint Patty&Bun and the Instagrammable cakes from UK’s Peggy Porschen to Australia’s Knafeh Bakery for Middle Easter’s popular delicacies, the global tour will be nothing short of a delightful winter escape. The Truffle Burger, known for its lip-smacking burgers, will also be opening up its pop-up store during the ten-day festival.

Other activations

 Sited at the Inspire Space space, look forward to an immersive digital art installation by MOTN Funhouse x ANIMA which recognises its surrounding individuals through motion tracking technology and incorporates it into its art. In addition, fashion enthusiasts in the Middle East can make their way to London’s premier clothing streetwear store, Dukes Cupboard, featuring international brands for the very first time in the region.

The little ones can enjoy the informative and fun experience at CoComelon with kid-friendly activities to explore. The highlights here are the Melon Patch Academy, Old Macdonald’s Farm, and CoComelon’s famous mascot, JJ.
