Dubai Stars officially open to the public

Star-studded opening ceremony sees the city’s newest landmark revealed to the public

Dubai Stars officially open to the public

We first heard about the Dubai Stars earlier this year, when it was announced that 10,000 stars from around the world would be immortalised as part of a brand-new attraction in Downtown Dubai.

Now, it has been confirmed that the Dubai Stars on the Dubai Walk of Fame are open to the public, and you can now head to the Downtown Dubai attraction.

At an opening ceremony in Downtown Dubai today, Emaar announced the official opening of the new attraction, and it has said that the skies (or, indeed, the stars) are the limit. Described as the general manager of Downtown Dubai as being a limitless, immersive attraction that will spread beyond the boundaries of Dubai, and the region, the Dubai Stars is aiming to go global with recognition of some of the world’s most influential personalities.

We’ve got the full list of the celebrities honoured with a star so far right here.

At the event, stars from around the region, including Emirati comedian and Internet personality Khalid Al Ameri, received their stars, which are now available for you to see on the walk itself, alongside stars from around the world.

Some 400 stars are being awarded, from change-makers and eminent personalities from film, the arts, sports and social media influence.

The project will be more than four times the size of the legendary Hollywood Walk of fame.

And they want you to become part of its story. Visit and nominate individuals. Whose name will you put forward?
Open now. Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai,
