What's better than shopping? Shopping while getting an amazing deal! And that's why we love DSF so much.
For Dubai Shopping Festival, Deira City Centre, Mirdif City Centre and Mall of the Emirates are embracing this year's theme 'Dubai at its Best' from 3 January to 3 February and giving away a combined Dhs1.3 million in gift card prizes. Amaze!
Shoppers can win big by participating in the ‘Drop In and Triple Your Win’ at Deira City Centre and Mirdif City Centre, and ‘The Pick of Dubai’s Best Shopping Festival’ at Mall of the Emirates, a promotion that triples the excitement by giving shoppers the chance to win three times their original Dhs300 spend – every hour, every day until a total of Dhs1.3 million is given away.
During DSF, shoppers can also put their retail savvy to the test by participating in the ‘Price the Prize’ competition and correctly guess the price tag of a feature product. There will be a new product on display up for grabs every day. We definitely plan on sending our fashion editor Lindsay!
The malls will be open every day until 1am and there's plenty of entertainment to go along with the shopping. At Deira City Centre the Lebanese theatre group, the Louna Show, will hold two exciting shows and meet-and-greets with fans. The performance schedule will kick off with ‘Louna in The World of Seasons’ from 21 to 26 January, ‘Louna and The Busy Bee Show’ from 27 January to 1 February and Louna meet-and-greet accompanied with roaming band on February 2nd – 3rd. Kids in the community can participate in ‘Art Attack’ arts and crafts workshops daily from 12pm to 9pm 17 to 20 January, 2 to 3 February and 12pm to 5pm 21 January to 1 February.
Mirdif City Centre is bringing the popular UAE television show, Freej, to life this DSF with character meet-and-greets for special photo opportunities with fans from 4 to 13 January. In addition, the popular Moshi Monsters will perform Moshi ROX three times daily from 21 to 27 January. And the action-packed show ‘Wall Kings’ will perform four shows daily from 28 January to 3 February, showcasing their breathtaking stunt abilities.
Not to be outdone, Mall of the Emirates is hosting a circus which will rotate themes throughout the month – promising a new show for shoppers each week, including ‘New Years,’ Modern Circus,’ ‘Classic Circus’ and ‘Contemporaneous.’ The circus will perform three, 20 minute shows per day from Tuesday through Saturday at 3pm, 5pm and 8:30pm in the Central Galleria. Shoppers will also be treated to the upbeat sounds of a Flamenco guitarist and dancer, saxophonist, and jazz, Latin and electronic tunes in the Fashion Dome. Musicians will perform Wednesday to Sunday at 2pm, 4pm and 7:30pm.
Time to shop until you (almost) drop!
