WHERE: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
WHEN: from 21 April to 07 May 2023
Dubai, the city of dreams, large resorts and skyscrapers. The place of unbridled luxury and compulsive shopping. Artificial islands and spectacular fountains… and great cuisine.
For over two weeks, the Arab city hosts one of the most important exhibitions in all of the Arab Emirates.
Dubai Food Festival (DFF) is an international festival focused on gastronomy. An event that celebrates, and promotes, the diversity, creativity and multicultural offer of the city; from the proposals of the local tradition, to those of over 200 different nationalities. There really is something for everyone. This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the birth!
Created by British food artist Paul Baker, the Dubai Food Festival has become a particularly anticipated annual event. A paradise for lovers of food and entertainment. A review that involves large Gourmet restaurants, world-renowned chefs, small restaurants and cafes, and even shopping centers.
Dubai World Trade Center. Burj Khalifa. Burj Al Arab. Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Creek. These are just some of the names in the city involved in the initiative.
