Presents under palm trees - Fort Island’s Festive Market returns to Madinat Jumeirah

Dubai, 22 November, 2016: Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian resort of Dubai, will welcome back its annual Festive Market to Fort Island this December.

Nestled within the stunning arabesque architecture of Madinat Jumeirah’s expansive retail and hospitality offerings, the acclaimed Festive Market is widely-regarded as one of the winter season’s most popular family attractions.

Running from December 17 – 27 the market is open daily from 3pm - 1am on weekdays and 12pm - 1am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Spread across a 1,750 square metre winter wonderland, the Festive Market will feature a shimmering, beautifully-decorated festive tree at its centre and Santa will appear daily at 5pm and 7pm.

A live band will play seasonal music and a number of rides, slides and games will be offered including a North Pole train for the little ones, a two-lane bungee jump for teenagers, and a snow ball zone for children of all ages. Kids can also take abra tours with Santa and decorate a huge gingerbread house and cookie garden.

Madinat Jumeirah’s world-class hospitality team will ensure adults are kept well-fed with roasted chestnuts and seasonal beverages, multiple award-winning food and beverage outlets across the expansive Arabian resort - which includes three grand hotels, Jumeirah Al Qasr, Jumeirah Mina A’ Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem opening on December 1 – will run special festive menu and promotions.

In addition to Festive Afternoon Tea at Al Fayrooz Lounge in the Jumeirah Al Qasr lobby running throughout the 11-day Festive Market, another 16 restaurants across the full Madinat Jumeirah resort are offering signature dining, sumptuous buffet and casual dining packages on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
