Downtown Dubai’s Winter Festival
December 12, 2018 - April 30, 2019Free
Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown is the place to be if you want to set off the holidays Dubai-style. The 3.5km strip of restaurants and sights is freshening up this winter with an alfresco market selling crafts, toys and treats, an outdoor cinema screening classic family films, and a snow park with real falling snow.
It’s the perfect excuse to take advantage of the weather, walking along the vibrant district that will be decked with seasonal decorations–like a golden, fairy-lit reindeer–and art installations by celebrated artists from around the world.
You can make your way to the Downtown Market, which will take place twice a month until the end of April, or check out the free Snow Park and get in on snowball fights, tubing or chill out inside a snow globe until 25 December. If you’re interested in the outdoor cinema, you’ll find it at Downtown Eats, a hip container park that’s home to trendy eateries and unique food concepts.
This all-out festival is going to last 22 weeks, and it offers something for everyone. Shopping, food, films and games–Downtown Dubai is the ultimate hotspot this winter. Visit Downtown Dubai’s Facebook page for detailed information and updates on schedules and venues.
