Three-day Emirates cars and bikes festival coming to Dubai Festival City

Check out more than 1,500 custom motors


If you're a fan of custom bikes and cars, or just enjoy a good motor stunt, you need to head to this massive event in Dubai Festival City next week.

From Thursday December 6 to Saturday December 8, petrolheads around the city will be gathering at Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate’s fifth edition of the Emirates Cars & Bikes Festival at Marsa Plaza.

Expecting more than 20,000 visitors, the huge three-day festival will see 1,500 custom cars and bikes, including all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and 4x4s, taking part in stunt shows, grand parades and much more for motorheads to geek out over.

The festival will be hosting competitions for the best custom motorbikes and 4x4 cars, as motorists will also be showing off their wheels at the car and ATV shows.

That’s not all, as those who like adrenaline pumping acts can enjoy 23 different stunt riders from across the globe compete for the world championship title in the motorcycle freestyle riding event.

The best part? The event is completely free to enter.

“From custom cars and bikes to ATV’s and everything in between, the show has it all”, said Director Residential and Commercial Property of Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate Samer Zabian.

“As a true lifestyle destination, Dubai Festival City is the top choice for events and we are extremely pleased to be hosting the Emirates Cars & Bikes Festival, at Marsa Plaza, located along the historic Dubai Creek and look forward to enhancing experiences for visitors at the show.”

Speaking of all things motors, the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix took place over the weekend, with fabulous performances from Sam Smith and Guns N’ Roses.

Also taking place that weekend is Dubai’s Sole DXB, where fans of Notorious B.I.G. will be able to try on his legendary gold crown.

So many amazing shows, so little time.
