Dubai to Host the Longest Shopping Festival Ever

News When it comes to Dubai, travelers do not really need another reason to book a fancy Dubai hotel and tickets to this emirate. The internationally famous metropolitan city is so packed with landmarks and wonders that there is, actually, no need in advertising. That said, Dubai never ceases to amaze its guests and offer something new to them.

Dubai regularly hosts different festivals, and Dubai Shopping Festival is, by far, one of the most famous of them all. Organized by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), which is a subsidiary of Dubai Tourism, Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is one of the major events that regularly attract numerous visitors to the city. This year, it was decided to extend the festival by an extra week, so will now start on 26 December 2018 and end on 2 February 2019.

This is going to be the 24th time that Dubai hosts the shopping extravaganza. The successful festival is a true paradise for shoppers who arrive in Dubai in anticipation of crazy discounts, fantastic promotions, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities at the best shops in the city. All kinds of goods from international top brands await bargain hunters along with superb deals, discounts, and extra in-store sales. Moreover, mega raffles have become traditional during DSF, so tourists also have a chance to win luxury items, expensive cars, and large money prizes.

Discounts in shops are not the only advantage of Dubai Shopping Festival. The festival’s schedule is packed with different activities, so even tourists not interested in shopping still want to find a suitable Dubai hotel and visit the city in order to attend performances of iconic musicians, exciting events, and various family-friendly activities. Shopping malls usually have their own event schedules that include free-to-enter celebrations and parties by leading brands. The fabulous festival ends with spectacular fireworks.

According to DFRE officials, Dubai Shopping Festival remains one of the most popular events in the Retail Calendar of the emirate. Every year, more residents and tourists participate in the festival, and that encourages organizers to make it only bigger every year. Following the incredible success of the last year’s festival, it was decided to prolong DSF. The five-week program is still full of entertaining activities, exclusive promotions, and family fun.
