It is the 26th edition of Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) and the event is outdoing itself once again.
This year, there is a mind-boggling line-up of special events, concerts, life-changing raffles, pop-up markets, spectacular weekend fireworks and of course shopping promotions that are unlike anything else in the world.
The organisers have gone out of their way to ensure the festival is completely Covid-safe with malls, retail stores and attractions all putting important hygiene and safety measures securely in place. This means people – both visitors and residents alike – can enjoy the retail extravaganza with total confidence, while grabbing those amazing deals they have been dreaming about all year.
Here’s what to watch out for.
When: Until January 27
DSF Surprises is what puts the shopping extravaganza on the global map, with unheard of discounts all the way up to a staggering 90 per cent off. Fabulous deals will be up for grabs every day until January 27. They will be announced 24 hours in advance, with each promotion focusing on one brand or retailer at several locations from 10am until stocks run out.
Avoid serious FOMO by monitoring Mydsf.ae and DSF social channels to know instantly when the day’s deal is confirmed.
