Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 27 January 2023: The 28th edition of the Dubai Shopping Festival, the longest running festival of its kind in the world, is sadly coming to an end after 46 days of exceptional experiences. DSF will be saying its farewells after just one more weekend featuring a packed line-up of entertainment, offers, prizes, and more.
The final three days of DSF (27-29 January) see a citywide celebration including unmissable deals and incredible chances to win, from the DSF Final Sale to the DSF Greatest Deal of the Year; plus amazing pop-up markets and concepts including Etisalat MOTB, Cactus District, and SKIN CARE NATION at Mall of the Emirates. The tenth edition of Al Quoz Arts Fest also takes place over DSF’s closing weekend with two days of the best art and culture from the region. And it’s the very last chance to enjoy the Dubai Lights installations illuminating City Walk, Dubai Design District, and Palm Jumeirah before they're gone, forever.
FIREWORKS, DRONES AND LASER SHOWS
Make sure to catch the biggest light show yet to close DSF on 29 January at The Beach, JBR, and Bluewaters with mesmerising drone and laser shows, as well as fireworks at 10 PM. And be there to witness the last illuminating DSF Daily Fireworks spectacle, lighting up the skies at The Pointe on 28 January.
