So as promised, Dxb Blog is going festive, keeping you updated with the latest christmas happenings! Today I wanted to share the festive markets that will be on around Dubai in the coming weeks! Who doesn’t love a good ol’ Christmas market or festival?
Dubai’s very own winter Christmas fest @ Media City!
There’ll be santa, snow, fun and games, pizza making session, gingerbread decorating corners and much more! You can build a snow man, sing christmas carols, visit the fun fair.. Endless christmas, winter fun for all the family. but its a special place for the tots (Children!) Don’t miss out on this one, it is a ticketed event, prices range from 40-130 (Adults and children vary). Still haven’t got a christmas present? Fear not, theres a christmas marker with treats and something for everyone!
Christmas tree lighting!
Whether you want to go to Irish village and have a taste of the west or head out to the desert and see Bab al Shams put on their lights, you have a great selection of tree light ceremonies! Head over to the palm for astonishing views or Arabian ranches for a more relaxed evening? Or why not go to all 3? Dubai malls from Wafi to MOE and THE Dubai Mall will all have adorned trees and christmas decoration, so don’t forget to take the tots round to check out the different sizes, lights and tree topers! We used to be driven around streets as kids in the UK, looking at all the lights, the age of mall hopping to see all the trees and decorations is now upon us!
Nordic Christmas@ Hilton Jumeirah Beach
Another festival of fun, games and christmas snacks! Every year the nordic community invites you for some face painting, dancing around the tree, decorating, mince pies and a chance to meet the big man himself; Santa! Children upto the age of 16 get a little present too! This will be held from 12-3.30pm on the 26th November!
Arabian Ranches has their very own Christmas Carnival!
This one is a little different with residents selling used or pre-owned goods and vendors selling your favourite christmas specials! These guys certainly know how to bring christmas in with their Christmas Market day! There will also be face painting, Henna, balloon benders, Santa and even clowns for the tots! Why not go with a friend?
