Held each year in July, the Liwa Date Festival promotes and celebrates the symbolic and historic role that the date palm plays in Emirati culture. The festival revolves around the date competition, in which Emirati farms vie for the title of best date grower. Non-locals can attend and it's an incredible way to experience Emirati culture up close. Prizes are given away for the top dates in each category and there is a live date auction where some dates sell for over AED 6,000 (US$ 1,650) per kilo.
