Dubai Shopping Festival 2020: Market Outside The Box returns in a big way

The Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) has officially kicked off, and along with all the fabulous deals and celebrations that come with it, it also brings the grand return of one of our favourite al fresco markets.

The seventh edition of Market Outside The Box (MOTB) is set to launch at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai this month, and you’ll get to see local, regional and international musicians perform, along with a range of food vendors.

Taking place between Thursday January 16 and Saturday February 1, the highly-anticipated bazaar boasts local artisans showcasing homegrown brands, selling everything from funky jewellery, beachwear and other fashionable items to home accessories.

Shoppers can also expect a flurry of food stalls offering hot or cold beverages such as karak tea, along with doughy delights and wings to munch on while shopping around.

MOTB 2020 will also have plenty of live shows to jam around to, including local and international musicians, DJs, dance shows and a slew of exciting entertainment.

For all the gamers out there, there will also be a Game Zone featuring a huge, immersive gaming experience.

Like every year, it's completely free to enter saving you dirhams to spend on all of DSF's exciting deals.
