Madinat Jumeirah will be welcoming back its annual Festive Market to Fort Island this December. In a bid to foster the festive spirit, Jumeirah has introduced a brand-new addition to the yearly festivities; the ever-popular market is also heading to Jumeirah Creekside Hotel from 20th – 28th December.
This year, families can look forward to two magical Jumeirah festive fairs; one nestled within Madinat Jumeirah and the other in the heart of the city at Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. The well-known and loved Festive Market in Madinat Jumeirah is one of the must-visit family attractions in Dubai during the winter season. Demonstrating the essence of a traditional German Market, without the need for coats or scarves, visitors can expect festive fun, merry magic and endless entertainment for the whole family.
At Madinat Jumeirah, Santa’s little helpers can take to the winding waterways with the big man himself on a traditional Abra boat, enjoy the giant snow ball zone, marvel at the interactive LED Christmas tree and create their own gingerbread houses.
At Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, the shimmering lights and dazzling decorations will provide the perfect backdrop for all seasonal snaps and Instagram moments. With a mini train ride to the North Pole, face-painting and balloon bending, plus a two-lane bungee jump, the city Winter Wonderland is a destination for all.
The full family will be well-fed throughout thanks to festive foodie treats and seasonal beverages inspired by cuisines from all around the globe, which will be served up on site at both Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. Guests may even be lucky enough to have Santa himself pose for the camera as he makes his daily appearances at both locations throughout the nine days.
The market will be open daily from 12pm – late (3pm – late on Sunday 23rd and Wednesday 26th).
