Madinat Jumeirah Festive Market Dates Announced
Updated on 18 September 2023

Winter is around the corner, and Dubai is gearing up to celebrate National Day, the festive period, and New Year with musical festivals, outdoor markets, firework shows and more. And with that said, the dates for Dubai's iconic Madinat Jumeirah festive market are finally out. The market will make a comeback from 15 December to 7 January 2024. 

Located on Madinat Jumeirah Fort Island, the festive market will be spread across 1,750 square metres and offer immersive activities for families. You can take the North Pole train ride or spend time at the Venetian carousel; this market has something for everyone. Children will also get a chance to take abra rides with Santa and decorate their gingerbread houses. 

With pomp and grandeur, the festive market will also have live band entertainment, mini train rides, bungee jumping, tree light and sound shows, and varied shopping and dining options. Madinat Jumeirah hotel guests can access the festive market via Jumeirah Mina A'Salam. 

For external guests, access will be via Souk Madinat. Parking options will be limited, so arriving by taxi is highly recommended. In terms of timings, the market will be open from 3pm on Monday to Thursday and 12pm on Friday to Saturday. Entry to the market is free.
