The organizing committee for RAK NYE 2020 said: “Ras Al Khaimah New Year’s Eve has established itself as a must-see event for people from across the UAE and beyond after the major successes of the previous years’ events, where 3 Guinness World Records were won.”

“From a gala dinner, celebrated singers, family fun and a DJ event, Ras Al Khaimah New Year’s Eve 2020 is an opportunity to see in the New Year in style, while enjoying the multitude of attractions this up-and-coming Emirate has to offer,” concluded the organizing committee.
www.raknye.com is your gateway to all the information you need to make this New Year an unforgettable experience.
The website provides a detailed snapshot of the public viewing areas as well as information on the family activities that await visitors. The organizers are putting the finishing touches to special family zones complete with food trucks and children’s activities as well as live music and games. Further, there are ticketed events, including live DJs spinning the best beats, which can also be booked via the website.
A detailed schedule of events is provided on the website. The celebration starts at 5PM with family-oriented activities; ticketed DJ events from 6PM; the Gala Dinner at 8PM; and the much-awaited fireworks display close to midnight. To gain a breadth of the spectacle that awaits you, the website offers videos of fireworks galas from previous years that have set Guinness World Records.
The year’s fireworks display is bidding for two Guinness World Records. Among the special features are the use of pyro-drones, which will create a spectacular display – starting with the countdown to the New Year and going on to recreating the key monuments in Ras Al Khaimah through laser displays and pyrotechnics. Another new element is the Japanese aerial shell fireworks display, which is being brought to the region for the very first time.
In 2019, Ras Al Khaimah welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world to its NYE event and also set two Guinness World Records – for the ‘Longest chain of fireworks’ and for the ‘Longest straight line of fireworks’. The 2018 celebration set a new world record for the ‘Largest aerial firework shell’.
With a huge audience turnout expected, it is important to plan you trip ahead. All related information is available on the website, which also features a live streaming platform where you can catch up with the action as it happens.
