Without spending a dirham, take in live performances, balloon sculptures, and wandering entertainers.
The long weekend for the Eid Al-Adha holiday will soon be here. Four days off are wonderful.
There are several events taking place in the city to commemorate the occasion, including staycations and special breakfasts. There are also many locations where families may have a good time. Think of roving performers, balloon modeling, and live music.
What’s the best part, you ask? It’s free to enter many. The information you need on free family-friendly events taking place in Dubai throughout the Eid Al-Adha holiday has been compiled by us since we adore free activities.
Spend the Eid Al-Adha break at Bluewaters to fully enjoy the celebrations. An real Al Harbia band will play folk music on July 9 at The Wharf, while on July 10 Dubai’s favourite DSS characters Modesh and Dana will make an appearance at the gourmet hotspot, where you can eat at a variety of hip restaurants like The Pods, The London Project, and Alici.
Free events are scheduled for July 9–10 at 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, and 9 p.m. at The Wharf at Bluewaters (bluewatersdubai.ae)
Over the Eid Al-Adha break, BurJuman Mall’s culinary festival is definitely worth checking out. To check out the food trucks (which you will have to pay for) or to get up and dance (for free) to the live music that plays from 6pm to 9pm, head to the Pavilion Garden on Level Three of the mall. Over the holiday, there will also be roving performers.
