Plans for the third annual Dubai Food Festival have been released. Next year, the 17-day event will begin on 25 February, running until 12 March 2016. The project showcases hotel and standalone F&B outlets from across the emirate in a series of activities and events. The theme for 2016 will be ‘A Taste Celebration’. Successful aspects of the festival that will be introduced again in 2016 include the Beach Canteen pop-up in Jumeirah. In 2016, there will also be a focus on ‘Hidden Gems’. This experience involves a tour of Dubai’s undiscovered dining spots.
