Swap cucumbers for drinks at DXB Cucumber Carnival this weekend

Following the success of DXB Cucumber Day, the celebrations are coming back bigger and better this year to present an elevated and unusual experience in the form of DXB Cucumber Carnival at Soho Garden on 17th and 18th October.

If you've been living under a rock, DXB Cucumber Carnival is an action packed, festival-style weekend packed with performances, tastings, workshops and shows happening in tandem, all weekend. 

Throughout the weekend enjoy a veritable concoction of diverse performances from international acts such as The Electric Swing Circus; plus marvel at pickpocket and magic shows, participate in tarot readings and various interactive, roaming acts including physical comedy. Guests are invited to take part in high-level sporting feats involving hobby horse polo, cucumber croquet and Vintage Olympics including tug of war, rose and spoon race, three-legged race and Cucumber Cup Horse Race. FUN!

On Thursday 17th October, join Tuck into The Feast (7:30-9:30pm) with friends and tickle your taste buds with a medley of epicurean delights in a banquet style set-up consisting dished like grilled New Zealand lamb chops and pan roasted chicken breast with truffle mash potato. Whet your whistle with free-flow of juniper infused libations presented by a world class mixologist.

Friday 18th October sees a double dose of cucumber entertainment and green-fingered fans across Dubai will unite to enjoy a quintessential High-Tea (served 3-5pm). You’ll feast on a collection of mini sandwiches and an array of sweet treats such as Hendrick’s citrus and pink peppercorn eclairs and Hendrick’s poached strawberry tartlets all hosted by Victorian style characters Henrietta and Archibald.

If that's not a fun weekend, we don't know what it.
