About Dubai Food Festival
Dubai Food Festival is the only truly citywide food festival in the Middle East. Held every year, it celebrates Dubai’s emergence as a gastronomic destination. The festival offers a calendar of exciting food-related events and promotions, highlighting Dubai’s unique food scene, its personalities and its world-class dining experiences.
With over 200 nationalities living in Dubai, the Dubai Food Festival reveals the diversity and creativity in our culinary offerings—from gourmet and avant-garde restaurant concepts to local haunts and hidden gems.
Dubai Food Festival is organised by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), an agency of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM). It is part of a larger strategy to develop a year-round programme of citywide festivals that contributes to the growth of tourism and retail sectors in Dubai.
