All you need to know about Dubai Shopping Festival
Widely called DSF, the Dubai Shopping Festival goes on for six epic weeks and includes exclusive offers from the region’s largest stores, malls, shops, brands and retailers. That makes it one of the most awaited annual festivals in Dubai.
The first edition of the festival was held in 1996, and the concept behind it was planned by none other than H.H. Sheik Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The Dubai Shopping Festival 2021 will be the 26th edition of this series. It has played a significant role in supporting the retail sector and the tourism industry in Dubai.
What to expect?
When it comes to the Dubai Shopping Festival, the sky is a boundary, and you should expect anything to unfold. Over the years, several world records have been set at DSF, such as milestones for the longest chain in the world, the longest couch in the world, the largest bowl of biryani, the largest shopping bag, and other amazing feats that you are likely to find only in Dubai. In 2013, the first travelling train fashion exhibition was conducted inside the Dubai Metro!
Retailers also start planning a few months ahead of the festival season to accommodate millions of overjoyed shoppers. You can find unique Dubai Shopping Festival deals on electronics, clothing, perfumes, jewellery and more. Discounts and offers are widely expected to the degree that Dubai residents hold back from purchasing something for months, only so they can purchase items at a discount with the incredible Dubai Shopping Festival sales. Those looking for a touch of fun will find that you will see fireworks, festivals, fashion shows and commercial signage all over the city as part of DSF celebrations.
