Visitors can enjoy interactive activities, competitions, heritage events and various workshops, such as the coffee, ship, dagger and burqa  workshops. In addition, the event provides the opportunity to visit an art exhibition by the artist Azza Al Qubaisi, through which she displays a collection of her work inspired by the palm tree and its parts.
