Enjoy The Festivities And The Fun

Not only is Dubai the ultimate shopping destination, it’s exactly where we want to be — at the centre of it all, sharing in the good times and good things with our friends and family. Celebrate with us and you’ll see how the city becomes a colourful stage for amazing venues, entertainment and events. During DSF, parks and districts turn into outdoor theatres, attracting audiences in the thousands. From family shows featuring children’s favourite TV characters to performances by gravity-defying gymnasts and ballet troupes to concerts by renowned Arab singers and Bollywood stars, the world comes to watch one amazing show after another.

Locations such as Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, as well as Zabeel Park, Kite Beach and the massive Global Village, play host to exciting street carnivals celebrating the family spirit of Dubai Shopping Festival and the mixing of many different cultures.

Entertainment includes folk dancing in national costumes, live music and international concerts performed by global music icons. And don’t miss the circus acts: everything from unicyclists and stilt walkers to jugglers and mime artists can be found delighting the crowds lining the streets. There are also amazing fireworks every weekend, fashion shows, fun fair rides, pop-up restaurants and markets to enjoy, along with traditional Emirati heritage events like the Fazza Championships, which mark the best in falconry, shooting and pearl diving.
