‘Dubai Food Festival – The Tastiest Gig in Town!’

It’s time to treat your taste buds to a spectacular culinary experience at the Dubai Food Festival. This 17-day programme, which begins on Thursday 23 February, showcases a smorgasbord of the very best of Dubai’s gastronomy, highlighting a range of cuisine that is available throughout the city, from the most celebrated and preeminent dining experiences through to delightful new discoveries.

This is a world-class culinary event you don’t want to miss, including appearances from celebrity chefs and featuring pop-up restaurants, dining deals and competitions. Highlights take in Miele Dubai Restaurant Week, Street Nights, Taste of Dubai, Eat the World DXB, and a competition called Dine & Win where entrants could walk away with a new apartment!

Situated in its new home at Sunset Beach, the Etisalat Beach Canteen is the hub of the event, a free-to-attend Dubai Food Festival beach club that offers a carnival of food, entertainment, sports, fitness and family fun throughout the entire 17 days. What’s more, it’s even better than last year … and it’s bigger too; four times bigger to be exact, and will provide a variety of unique high-end beach dining experiences, as well as hosting Al Islami Masterclasses led by celebrity chefs. In addition to what will be a wide array of food and drink on offer, including local Emirati cuisine, the health-conscious can also take part in beach yoga classes or enjoy a delicious fruit smoothie.

This lively, flamboyant beach location will also act as the ticketing hub for the entire festival, including Darnival, featuring Fatafeat Kitchen. This is family entertainment at its very best and, hosted at Dubai Festival City Mall, features both regional and international celebrity chefs, cooking demonstrations, free tasting sessions, and much, much more besides. And we mustn’t forget Truckers DXB, an incredible outdoor experience at Business Bay where visitors can choose street food from around the world served from 19 local food trucks.

The Dubai Food Festival provides an opportunity to taste as many foods from as many different cafes and restaurants as your stomach will allow! All of the latest trends and concepts will be on show and award-winning fine dining can be enjoyed for an exceptional price.

Put simply, this is the perfect foodie festival, with events that cover everything from intimate dinners and walk-around tastings through to family friendly extravaganzas. Dubai Food Festival is a place where people come to have fun, enjoy great food and meet lots of talented chefs. It’s a place where people come together for something unique, spectacular and just downright tasty!
