Al Hamra VillageRas Al Khaimah, the dynamic Emirate known for its breathtaking landscapes and rich cultural heritage, is again gearing up to bid farewell to the year in grandeur. This New Year’s Eve, the skyline will be illuminated with an awe-inspiring 4.5km fireworks and drone display as the emirate bids adieu to 2023 and welcomes 2024 with open arms.

Set against the picturesque waterfronts of Al Marjan Island and Al Hamra Village, the event, organized by Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) and the Emirate’s New Year’s Eve Organising Committee, promises to be a night of unrivalled festivity. The spectacular display is a visual feast and a testament to Ras Al Khaimah’s commitment to creating unforgettable experiences for its residents and visitors.

Complementing the fireworks will be a host of events catering to all ages. The public event offers free access and features DJ entertainment, children’s activities, a variety of food trucks, and designated areas for families and bachelors. Those seeking a more exclusive experience can opt for the ticketed “Soundfest” event, promising an international artist line-up, a kids’ area, and diverse food and beverages.

The emirate will be abuzz with festive celebrations in the days leading up to New Year’s Eve. From tree lighting ceremonies and Christmas events to gala dinners, Ras Al Khaimah’s hotels, including renowned names like the Ritz-Carlton, Rixos Bab Al Bahr, and Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Beach Resort, will offer a plethora of activities for visitors and residents.
