24+ Best New Years Eve Abu Dhabi Events 2022

New Years Eve Abu Dhabi events are always ‘extra’ with some of the largest firework displays in the world, not to mention fantastic parties and lavish brunches and banquet feasts.

Last Year, Al Maryah Island held the largest New Years Firework display in the world. In true UAE fashion, it included an elaborate drone show creating incredible 3D images.

The drones slowly make their way into position, it is truly mesmerising how clever the NYE displays are year on year.

The weather over the festive period in Abu Dhabi is perfect to be outside. It is high season in the region for visitors and events.

Interestingly, the Islamic New Year does not fall at the same time. It is also referred to as Hijri New Year and will be in July.

The date of Hijri is based on the moon like all Islamic celebrations be it Ramadan or Eid. The current Islamic year is 1444. Despite UAE being an Islamic country, New Years as we know it is widely celebrated.

Whether you are spending New Years Eve in Abu Dhabi as a tourist, or living in the Emirate, we have all the basis covered. Check out this complete list of all the New Year Celebrations in Abu Dhabi covering every inch of the city.
