The famous Dubai Shopping Festival has returned for its 27th edition from 15 December 2021 to 29 January 2022.
As always, it features an array of innovative events, lively concerts, incredible drone shows, fireworks displays, global brand collaborations, life-changing mega raffles, promotions, and offers across a range of homegrown and global brands.
DSF visitors can expect a packed program of events, including theatrical performances, community markets, and exclusive exhibitions, folklore and heritage shows, funfairs, and many other activities for families and children, in addition to exciting events at the EXPO 2020 site and gastronomy delights awaiting foodies in every corner of the city.
The return of the popular alternative retail concept, Market OTB at Burj Park, and the DSF Market at Al Seef also adds to the DSF excitement and enriches the festival experience.
The opening ceremony at the Burj Park has featured augmented reality stage integrations, a breathtaking Burj Khalifa light show, and dancing fountains. Superstars Balqees Fathi and Mohammed Hamaki have had delightful live performances.
The DSF Drone Light Show returned to Bluewaters, The Beach opposite JBR, and the newly opened Ain Dubai, and it runs daily at 7 pm and 9.30 pm. Set to ‘Ya Salam Ya Dubai’ by Rashed Al Majed and RedOne; the Expo 2020 anthem, ‘This is Our Time’; and David Guetta’s global hit ‘Titanium’, the show tells the story of the UAE’s past, present, and future.
Dubai Shopping Festival witnesses not just locals but even tourists who visit Dubai in hunt of the best deals on some of the best brands and shopping products. While the Dubai Shopping Festival had already begun in 2021, it continues well into January, helping shopping-lovers make the most of the new year.
