Counting down to Dubai Shopping festival, one of the world's largest

The 25 edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival starts on 26 December 2019 and runs up to 1 February 2020, with an incredible line-up of festivities, deals and events. 

The Dubai Shopping Festival  (DSF) 2020 promises to make the best of the unusually cool weather at this time of the year to have both outdoor as well as indoor markets, stages and events.

Outdoors will be markets, live concerts with international superstars, flash-mobs and fireworks displays. Indoors will be mega sales, rewards and unbeatable retail experiences.

A diverse calendar of events features 38 days packed with show-stopping performances, immersive experiences, celebrations and surprise deals to look out for each day. 

For overseas travellers, official airline Emirates offers an extra 10 kg baggage allowance on their return leg home, if they travel within the DSF 2020 dates.

The first edition of Dubai Shopping Festival was launched in 1996 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
