With so many options to choose from, it’s always useful to have a little help – which is where the comes in. With events easily searchable by date and category, finding the perfect festive destination has never been easier.

Farhad Mohammad Ali Abdulrahman, Director – Customer, Brand Development, and Innovation at Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment, said, “There’s no better place to be this festive season than in Dubai. Across the Emirate, people old and young will be celebrating as we say a fond farewell to 2011, and welcome in the New Year. With spectacular fireworks, theatre, dance, music and family-friendly entertainment, there really is something for everyone – and The Dubai Calendar has it all wrapped up.”

The Dubai Calendar is the first official reference for all events including festivals, exhibitions, cultural and sport happening throughout the year in Dubai. The main objective of this initiative is to keep business, travel and leisure visitors, and residents informed about the various activities happening in Dubai at any point during the year, and enhance their experience in the emirate.

The Dubai Calendar is developed and managed by the Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment for the Government of Dubai as a tool supporting the drive to deliver upon Dubai’s growth. More info
