Dubai Festival City Mall launches family outdoor market experience

by Out and About Mag.

For the first time ever, in partnership with ​The Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (DTCM), Dubai Festival City Mall, part of Al-Futtaim Group is transforming its Festival Bay, the waterfront promenade from 6th January to 10th April to launch a series of "On the Creek" outdoor experiential activations. The first chapter of the series, Market on the Creek, will run every day starting 6th January to 20th February. The Market on the Creek will focus on Bazaars, F&B, entertainment from homegrown talent, products and brands. 

Festival City Mall

Curated exclusively by homegrown brands with extensive experience in luxury, high end and high street style products, Market on the Creek will feature pop up stores owned by UAE born and raised entrepreneurs. From fashion to beauty and wellness, health foods and nutrition, home décor and many other different categories, visitors will be able to discover deals on one-of-a-kind unique products in The Market Bazaar committed to supporting local start-ups. 

In addition to the market bazaar, visitors will also be able to experience exhilarating activations and mouth-watering F&B across the six weeks. Inspired by the greatest K-Pop superstars, The Market K-Pop Fanzone is a unique installation and homage to a cultural phenomenon that has taken the world by storm. Visitors are encouraged to come dressed in their favourite icon's attire and share their images and videos on Instagram by using the activation Hashtag to win cool prizes. 

For those who would like to de-stress in a more artistic way, a designated area is created to let out your inner artist. The arts and crafts workshop area is definitely a must to experience for the little ones.

2020 has taught us a lot! There are some untold inspirational stories that Dubai residents can share on The Message Wall and read about other's incredible learnings and experiences. If you love Games, this may be your chance to shine. Participate in Jenga, Checkers and Tic Tac Toe and challenge your family or friends. The activities are open to all age groups.

With strict precautionary measures in place to ensure the safety of its customers, Dubai Festival City Mall is the safest place to be in this winter. Over the next three months, Dubai Festival City Mall's On the Creek series will bring a range of activities such as live entertainment featuring bands, DJs, street performers and interactive workshops for children of all ages will entice visitors to come join the fun with family and friends and relish the cool weather in the city. 

Speaking ahead of the opening, Steven Cleaver, Director, Shopping Centers Dubai, Al-Futtaim Malls said: 'As ever, our focus at Dubai Festival City Mall is to provide our shoppers with exceptional experiences every day.
