A two-day celebration of everything barbecue, visitors to this family event can take part in a cook-off, burger eating competitions and more relaxed (and infinitely less competitive) barbecue picnics, with the entry price including unlimited food such as gourmet steaks and Middle Eastern-style kebabs. Though there will be local musicians entertaining the crowds on both days, Thursday tickets include live performances by international acts Diana King and Marty of No Mercy, while Friday tickets include a live set by UB40 (with Robin Campbell, Duncan Campbell and Brian Travers).
Thu Dhs295, Fri Dhs350. Thu from 4pm, Fri from 1pm. Emirates Living, search The Big Grill on www.Facebook.com.
