Summer in Dubai for families

Dubai’s summer calendar is jam packed with a full line up of events, festivals, shopping deals and promotions for families and kids of all ages


Kicking off in June, Dubai’s summer calendar is jam packed with a full line up of events, festivals, shopping deals and promotions for families and kids of all ages and proudly showcases Modhesh World, Ramadan in Dubai, Eid in Dubai, Dubai Summer Surprises and lots more.

Spearheading the summer excitement is everyone’s favourite mascot – Modhesh, and his popular edutainment zone, Modhesh World which takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from now until September. This year, Modhesh is very excited to be partnering with the likes of Angry Birds and Hello Kitty and bringing some of their most loved characters to life during the event. With a huge range of games, contests, rides, shows and adventure inspired activities there’s heaps of fun for all the family and plenty to keep everyone entertained. Modhesh World features large themed educational zones inside Dubai World Trade Centre for little nippers to indulge in, in a safe and temperature controlled environment. Since its inception in 2000, Modhesh World has continued to grow in popularity and it continues to offer great value for money too. at just Dhs15 per child and Dhs10 per adult (and kids under the age of three go free!). Parents needn’t fret either - Modhesh World is in the heart of the city, easy to reach and offers plenty of parking nearby, and there are lots of food and drink options inside so you can take a breather while the kids have a good time.

The fun doesn’t start and stop with Modhesh World either - as Ramadan in Dubai launches from June 29 to July 27 to showcase a variety of cultural activities and opportunities to participate in and learn more about the Holy Month. The family fun keeps going with Eid in Dubai from July 28th to August 1st which will feature musical concerts, plays, theatrical and cartoon character shows and more exciting promotions and activities the whole family can enjoy together in celebration of Eid Al Fitr.

Everyone’s favourite summer festival, Dubai Summer Surprises is also back and will run from August 2nd to September 5th and will play host to a number of big events plus all the usual fabulous shopping promotions.
