MOTHER OF THE NATION
The fifth edition of MOTN, the region’s ultimate entertainment festival, is set to return to Abu Dhabi this winter with a 10 day celebration of exciting festivities. Organised by Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT), the unique festival is set to run December 9-18, 2021 on Abu Dhabi Corniche and will feature plenty of Instagrammable opportunities, tons of family fun, and ongoing live entertainment. The MOTN experience begins right from the moment guests arrive at the branded parking area and continues as they walk up to the venue, with live art installations and music. Inside MOTN, festival goers will find delight in six zones: Inspire Space, Thrill Zone, Food Hub, Music Arena, Shopping District, and Amusement Park. The festival is designed to be a full-blown entertainment destination showcasing global and local culture and hospitality, alongside world-leading retail outlets, an array of mouth-watering dishes, and the creative works of various international and regional artists. The festivities will take place in line with the Go Safe Certification, a unique programme launched by DCT Abu Dhabi that aims to enforce global standards of safety and cleanliness at hotels, attractions, and venues across the emirate.
Basketball Hub will participate in the festival by running different activities on the neon led basketball court at the INSPIRE Space. We will celebrate basketball with the UAE MOTN 3X3 Championship weekend, Holiday Clinics, 3 points shooting contests, a dunk contest and the MOTN King of the Court 2021 Tournament.
