This weekend, let’s swap the sandy beaches for the rugged beauty of Jebel Hafit Mountain as Cucina del Sul’s Meat and Mountains food festival makes a triumphant return on Saturday, December 9. And here is a little secret… its only back for a very limited amount of time, so allow me to tell you all the reasons why you have to visit it!
A Feast Amidst The Peaks: What To Expect?
I can already picture it – open-fire cooking, laughter in the mountain breeze, and a day filled with excitement. For just AED 378, adults get to indulge, kids aged five to 12 join the fun for AED 94.50, and the little ones under five get in for just ONE dirham! Your ticket covers all your cravings, drinks, and access to a plethora of activities.
Adventures Await: More Than Just A Food Festival
Beyond the gastronomic delights, your ticket is your passport to a day-to-evening extravaganza. From kite flying to cave exploring, embark on a guided hike or simply soak in the live entertainment while savouring the culinary delights. Feeling a bit more adventurous? Opt for a camel ride or rent a bike for an added thrill.
Art In The Wild: Unveiling The Outdoor Exhibit
Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of local art with the outdoor Art Trail:
- The Doors Collection: Works by 7 Emirati artists transition from one piece to another, each showcasing a unique perspective.
- Cultural Tranquility: The trees and arches of the old Cultural Foundation come alive in an exquisite galvanized steel sculpture.
- Haa: Inspired by negative and positive spaces, using simple lines to frame everything around us.
- Seven Birds: Presenting the 7 Emirates and 7 days, flying free towards the future of creativity and culture.
Under The Stars: Camp Out At Jebel Hafit
And the best part is that everyone is welcome to pitch their tents at Pura Eco Retreat in Jebel Hafit Desert Park, granted you have already made a prior reservation before arriving. No tent? No problem! Call the hotel to rent one for the night, and let the mountains be your nighttime canopy.

Catch the magic this Saturday, December 9, and for one more unforgettable evening on Saturday, December 16, both starting from 4 pm till late.
