Expo City Dubai brings a winter fairytale

For the festive season, the new Expo City Dubai pedestrian quarter will be transformed into a winter fairytale with a Christmas fair. Starting on November 23, the former Expo City Quarter will host more than 50 festive events.

In addition to the chalet-style Christmas market, children will enjoy traditional winter entertainment and festive decorations, including a Christmas tree. A lighting ceremony will be held on the 16-metre evergreen tree on 9 December.

The Christmas theme will be reflected in the projection show in the Al Wasl Dome – which will be broadcast every evening. Families will be able to take part in gingerbread baking, visit a toy factory and have their own bespoke teddy bear made and visit Santa’s grotto.

The live entertainment programme will be called Mrs Claus’s Christmas Show from 20 to 29 December. The Carols by Candlelight show will run for five days, including Christmas Eve.

A festive concert is planned for December 2 – the venue will be celebrating the 51st anniversary of the unification of the UAE. Children aged 6 to 12 will also enjoy an exciting winter camp that will run for a fortnight.

All guests will be able to visit Expo City Dubai with their four-legged friends – free refreshments, waste bags, water fountains and dog watering holes have been introduced.

Leashed pets are free to roam the grounds but are not allowed in the pavilions. Meanwhile, outside restaurants are allowed to bring pets with them. Entrance to Expo City Dubai remains free.

Light and music performances take place under the famous Al Wasl dome from Wednesday to Sunday. Expo City Dubai has opened four pavilions and additional attractions to the public, and has introduced one-day passes for AED 120 to visit them.

The one-day pass, for example, allows guests to visit the Vision, Terra, Sustainability, Mobility and Women’s Pavilion pavilions. More pavilions will be added to the pass as they open. The pass can be purchased online at www.expocitydubai.com.

Children up to 12 years old and people with special needs can visit the redesigned campground for free – all you need to do is pick up your admission tickets at the ticket office. Access to Surreal Falls also remains free.
