Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Tahnoon bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Ain Region, the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is organising the 11th edition of Al Ain Book Fair (AABF) at the Al Ain Convention Centre.

The ten-day event will host various local publishing houses and cultural institutions, with the aim to display a selection of Emirati titles and authors, explore their creative experiences, and offer a showcase to their intellect and cultural contribution. Additionally, the Fair will feature daily book signings of publications by UAE-based intellectual and creative figures.

The Cultural Programme accompanying AABF will host a selection of authors and poets to discuss various intellectual topics, featuring poetry evenings, symposiums and musical performances by Emirati performers, alongside a dynamic set of activities for children aged 6-12 in the ‘Creativity Corner’ that include activities and shows by the popular television series ‘Iftah Ya Simsim’.

AABF will provide the public with opportunities to meet and converse with authors, featuring a diverse programme that attracts those interested in cultural and literary matter.

The Fair offers free admission and is open to visitors daily.
