Every year from February 23rd to March 11th, Dubai becomes the foodie destination because of its food festival. The festival has a calendar of exciting food-related events and promotions, which highlights Dubai’s unique food scene, its famous celebrities and its world-class dining experiences. The Arab world’s top celebrity chefs participate in the event, which is expected to become one of the biggest attractions during the most anticipated citywide food festival in the Middle East.
With people from over 200 different nationalities living in Dubai, it’s no wonder that the Dubai Food Festival is a display of both diversity and the creativity: there is everything from gourmet and avant-garde restaurant concepts to local haunts and hidden gems. The event will capture the imagination and inspire audiences across Dubai with a fusion of fun and entertaining activities.
The Dubai Food Festival is organized by Dubai Festivals and the Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency that belongs to Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM). It is part of a larger strategy to develop a year-round program of citywide festivals that contributes to the growth of tourism and retail sectors in Dubai.
