It's set to be bigger and better than ever...
For the 8th year running, we're kick-starting the festive season in the emirate with the return of our Festive Fair. Happening on November 22, we've got some brand new, exciting changes for you all to enjoy!
As always, it's a free-entry event for all. Of course, annual favourites like Santa's Grotto and our Crafter's Market will be making a return, but there's a whole lot more to be explored at our 2019 event.
Here are all of the highlights we have to look forward to at this year's ExpatWoman Festive Fair 2019!
We're in a NEW location
For 2019, we'll be bringing the festive fun to you at the Sports Park in Dubai Sports City. Our new home for the Festive Fair is easy to get to, offers ample parking and is within walking distance for DSC and Motor City residents.
For the adults among us, you'll be familiar with the venue if you've visited Kickers before, or you/your child has joined in any sports/fitness clubs that occur here. We're taking up the big field next to the rugby pitch and behind the tennis courts so we'll have a central location that's easy for all to find.
Extended festive fun with new date AND timings
This year we're moving our Christmas fair to Friday, and it'll be happening from 10 am until 9 pm so you can enjoy the festive fun for much longer.
For families, Santa's Grotto will be open until 6 pm, so little ones will have plenty of chance to meet the main man and share their Christmas lists.
We have a jam-packed schedule of live entertainment onstage planned for you, too...performances from Greenfield International School, Dubai Music School, science shows, plus live performances by local talent to close off the event.
There'll be all-day, FREE activities for kids too - including a festive train, bungee, obstacle course, and more.
For the adults, extended timings mean more time to relax, unwind and enjoy the various food trucks and bars that will be onsite - including our (new for 2019) beer garden!

HUGE prizes up for grabs
For our 8th edition, we've partnered with Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives to give one Festive Fair visitor a chance to WIN a four-night, full-board stay in one of the resort's luxurious overwater villas.
There'll be plenty more prizes and giveaways up for grabs, and details are yet to be confirmed... So, stay tuned!
Thanks to the team from GMC, we will be holding Holiday Home workshops on the day, which will see a full-day program of DIY sessions that are sure to inspire you to decorate your home this festive season... That is if you haven't already put your Christmas decorations up before November 22? *guilty*
