The week-long desert fiesta inaugurated on Saturday night showcases the rich and traditional culture of the Arab world, "A desert festival gives us the opportunity to welcome the rest of the world to the UAE to experience a different style of life that is varied and rich and offers an unforgettable taste of the desert, recreating cherished moments of the desert's glorious past and diverse culture, said Mohammed bin Fahad, Chairman of the Zayed Prize and Vice President of the World Deserts Foundation.



The unique heritage and culture of desert regions that are unified by deep-rooted social and cultural ties and yet retain their own distinct identities will be on prominent display at the festival. Desert sports, handicrafts, paintings and photography, flora and fauna, calligraphy, desert clothing, pottery and carbon painting competitions are also being held. (The Emirates Evening Post)
