DUBAI: Dubai Festival City Mall is set to launch a host of activities for the whole family on the occasion of the Dubai Food Festival (DFF), which takes place until May 15, 2022. From amazing competitions and entertainment to a Ripe By The Bay experience like no other, the iconic shopping destination will mark the event with plenty of good times and great eats.
Visitors who spend AED 150 and above at Dubai Festival City Mall will be in for scratch and win up to AED 10,000 Festival City Mall gift cards at Festival Square! But there is much more taking place at the al fresco haven…
Ripe By The Bay will also be hosting immersive foodie experiences as part of ‘Beyond the Dish’ in partnership with the Dubai Food Festival on weekends. In a journey of discovery, visitors and food connoisseurs will find some of the best workshops underlining sustainability best practices and showcasing local talent. From May 13 until May 15, culinary aficionados will get to watch as chefs make the most of “ugly vegetables” and showcase their talent with limited ingredients. Food Waste Warriors Talks will feature educational sessions for all ages on the power of food waste.
At Ripe By The Bay, kiddies will also be celebrating the Dubai Food Festival in a “no-bake energy balls” workshop, learning how to make snacks with leftover ingredients such as dates and seeds. For the love of food art, both children and adults will paint and create masterpieces with food, while getting an understanding of waste management through simple demonstrations.
Mallgoers of all ages will also find their fun with themed, vibrant roaming entertainment, plenty of photo opportunities and social media competition.
