The Dubai Shopping Festival Is Coming Back!
Updated on 27 October 2021

The Dubai Shopping Festival is back and is set to offer individuals with a range of raffles, shopping, entertainment and promotions.

The 27th edition of the festival will run from 15 December 2021 to 29 January 2022.

The shopping festival this year will also coincide with the UAE’s Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the festival will offer events, including theatrical performances, community markets, exclusive exhibitions, folklore and heritage shows, fun fairs and other activities for families and children.

Additionally, concerts, drone shows, fireworks displays, global brand collaborations, mega raffles and promotions will be held throughout DSF.

Market OTB at Burj Park and the DSF Market at Al Seef will also be back for DSF this year and will offer an alternative retail concept.

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) said, “Inspired by the visionary leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, the city has always exceeded expectations when organising festivals and events. With Dubai open to all travellers and visitors from across the globe, we will roll out an extraordinary Dubai Shopping Festival during this landmark year in which the city is hosting EXPO 2020 and celebrating the nation’s Golden Jubilee. As the longest-running and most successful shopping festival of its kind, we extend our deepest gratitude to our retailers and partners for their continued support to DSF, as we work even more closely with them this year to ensure that the festival will once again provide one of the best shopping experiences and create many memorable Dubai moments for residents belonging to over 200 nationalities, and global travellers.”
