At Sikka Art Festival 2023, visitors can expect a variety of exhibitions, workshops, and storytelling sessions to mark the anniversary. There are 13 "Houses of Artists Showcase" to explore, including the Architectural Heritage Society, Tashkeel, and the Al Fahidi Arts & Culture Centre. In addition to these showcases, the festival also features nine indoor and outdoor art installations, six murals, over 150 workshops, 90 activities and screenings for kids, live music performances, and film screenings. Visitors can also enjoy food and beverages from 30 different vendors.

Our review

Must visit for art lovers. A lot of fun and interesting stuff: workshops, installations, galleries, performances, exhibitions – interactive and not. Not that crowdy, though parking is terrible – wouldn’t advise driving on car here. Metro station (Sharaf DG and Burjuman) is 10-15 min walk from the place, so getting here is not a problem. People who mildly interested in art will find other activities to do as well. There are food courts and stage, cafe and local atmosphere. Highly recommend to visit.
