Festival of Lights Up in Sharjah

The Sharjah Light Festival that puts Sharjah’s landmark buildings in the spotlight, with stunning video mapping on their façades will be held from February 6 to16.

The ninth edition of the Sharjah Light Festival features large-scale light installations, projections and mapping inspired by subjects such as science, creativity, culture and knowledge. The 11-day festival attracts over a million visitors to more than a dozen locations across the Emirate, including Al Noor Mosque, Al Qasba and Al Majaz Waterfront. All the shows are free daily from 6 pm to 11 pm (until midnight on weekends) and a parade along the Corniche will take place around 9 pm each evening.

The emirate of Sharjah is well-known for its rich, cultural heritage – an identity that has been recognized a number of times as shown by the winning of the Cultural Capital of the Arab World 1998 and Islamic Culture Capital 2014 awards. It is a vibrant city with an exciting food and arts scene, a heritage area that is the largest restoration project in the region along with various commercial centres and over 22 museums.
