Free Ramadan night market at Dubai’s Al Seef

Al Seef is hosting a festive night market by Dubai Creek every evening until the end of Ramadan.

The outdoor market will host fresh food stalls, arts and crafts stations and souvenir stalls with unique artefacts in the midst of a bustling hub of culture and heritage.

On weekends, the marketplace will transform into a bazaar of entertainment with traditional performers including oud players, Arabic singers and tanoura dancers every Thursday and Friday night.

There will also be a henna artist and sous (liquorice drink) vendors onsite, while a storyteller will entertain little ones with Ramadan stories, games and competitions every night.

The night market intends to bring the community together to support local farmers, small businesses and talented artisans and runs from iftar to suhoor every night.

The full weekend line-up is as follows:
