Santa Claus is coming to Dubai this year... And here's where you can find him!

It wouldn't be the holiday season without a chance to meet the main man himself. That's right, this December we're bringing back our hugely popular craft market at the ExpatWoman Craft Fair and as always, we're giving you and your little ones the chance to be one of the first to see Father Christmas in Dubai this year.

Happening on Saturday, December 12, our free-entry festive Craft Fair is coming to you at the Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club in Arabian Ranches.
