DUBAI: The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) returns next week with the very best the city has to offer, including unmissable deals, a kaleidoscope of entertainment experiences, mouth-watering food, and mega prizes.
The 28th edition of the world’s longest-running retail festival starts on 15th December, 2022, and runs until 29th January, 2023, across an action-packed 46-day calendar.
Over seven weeks, the DSF will feature only-in-Dubai shopping, winning, entertainment, and gastronomic experiences at citywide locations, including malls, high street shops, festival and community markets, and beachside destinations.
The festival will see the world’s best New Year’s Eve celebrations, unique dining experiences, life-changing raffles, the best deals from homegrown and global brands, and live concerts by regional and international music icons.
The DSF fireworks displays will be back with a bang this year, along with the return of the incredible drone show. Tunes DXB, too, returns by popular demand, bringing ten days of celebration for music lovers with live performances with some of the region’s hottest and hippest emerging talents. And in a first for the festival, families can enjoy Dubai’s glorious winter weather with a weekend of curated fun, adventure, and wellness at Hatta with the COREUNITY Festival.
Speaking about what to expect from DSF 2022-2023, Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, said, “Dubai Shopping Festival is not just the world’s longest-running retail festival, but also its best. The seven-week festival showcases the incredible experiences, events and entertainment that our great city has to offer.
