Dubai Food Festival

WHERE: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
WHEN: from 02 to 15 May 2022

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.

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.

Dubai Food Festival



If you were to set foot in the city of the Arab Emirates for the first time, you might be surprised by the incredible efficiency of public transport. Between metro, tram, bus and even small boats, there is only the embarrassment of the choice to move around the city. With the metro, you can move around without difficulty, and reach the various locations of the Dubai Food Festival. All the info, timetables and tickets, from this link.


This year from March the event has been postponed to May. For the entire period of the FDF, at the famous Etisalat beach, there will be numerous events and initiatives for everyone. Fascinating shows, waiting for the sunset. Gastronomy and street-food. Masterclass. Live music. Events for the family

Dubai Mall, and many other shopping centers, throughout the period, host many gastronomic initiatives. Special events, exclusive menus and lots of discounts await you. At the Mall restaurants, instant sweepstakes to win fantastic stays at the Palm Jumeirah.

During Dubai Restaurant Week, the best restaurants will offer the most spectacular food, in equally suggestive locations. Bread Street Kitchen, Lima Dubai, Scape Restaurant, Asado or Asia Asia by Gordon Ramsay at Pier 7. There is no shortage of competitions, children’s areas, and the RAKBANK RAKfoodie Entertainment Stage: a large dance floor where you can go wild for 3 nights with DJ Sheps , 4THEMUSIC, Zitti and the Knives Brothers.

But, as mentioned, Dubai Food Festival is an appointment for everyone. Not just for a select few. From Bur Dubai, to the quieter districts of Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim, you will be able to savor the authentic delicacies of old and new Dubai, with prices around 25AED.


Without doubt the most anticipated event, a real highlight of the entire DFF review. The event is scheduled from Thursday 10 to Saturday 12 March 2022.
