Round up the whole family, fur-babies included, for a day of fun in the sun on Friday, April 27th as the sweet smoky smell of BBQ fills the air at The Secret Garden, Jumeirah Creekside Hotel (next to the Irish village).

Whether you like your meat pulled or rubbed, everyone is welcome to fire up his or her own style of BBQ at one of the communal wood and charcoal BBQ stations setup on the green grass. There will be a gourmet butcher on site for supplies, and a designated non-halal area to grill. Guests are welcome to bring their own meat or purchase it from N&R Butchery on the day and cook up a storm. For those who’d rather just chill, there will also be a menu available that has been cooked by the specialists.

Family activities:
Kids will have their plates full with plenty of games, arts & crafts, and live entertainment to keep them busy throughout the day. Parents can leave their Mini Grill Masters in the safety of the onsite nursery to take a break, and enjoy a cold beverage at this fully licensed event.

Pets will be in Doggo Heaven playing by your picnic blanket or left to make new fur-riends in the supervised doggie Play Zone. Animal lovers and children are welcome to play with the cute puppers looking for a “Furever home” in the Rescue Zone. There will also be a Pamper Zone where you can reward your little floofers.

The Big BBQ Social will open its doors from 2pm till late.

Tickets cost Dhs120 for adults and Dhs50 for under 21’s, while kids under six can enter for free; and will be available on the door or pre-purchased at a discounted early-bird rate on
