City Walk to celebrate Matryoshka Festival in May


April 8, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based developer Meraas’s lifestyle destination City Walk will host the third edition of the Matryoshka Festival from May 2-5. The upcoming event is supported by the Russian Government through the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

During the three-day cultural extravaganza, City Walk will be transformed into a magical wonderland in keeping with this year’s fairy-tale theme. Showcasing the best of Russia, the fun-filled family event will offer visitors an insight into some of the most influential aspects of Russian culture and lifestyle, including contemporary fashion, classic and modern performing arts, sports and cuisine.

This year’s festival line-up includes Russian singer Nikolai Baskov, designer Igor Gulyaev, in addition to entertainers such as Bis-quit and the Acapella ExpreSS. The Matryoshka Festival also brings to City Walk a yarmarka (Russian market) fair, fashion displays, an iconic 3D art installation, light shows and unique stage performances by prima ballerinas from the Mariinsky Theatre of St Petersburg.

During the Matryoshka Festival, the piazza area – Multaqa Al Adwa – will be decorated with statues and figurines from popular Russian fairy tales. Pop-up shops will display current fashion collections, while UAE-based Russian vendors have a chance to showcase their products at the yarmarka. A special day will also be dedicated to the FIFA World Cup.

Further, an art competition has been designed especially for the event that will showcase local and international talent expressing the ‘Dubai story’ by painting large matryoshka dolls that will also be on display at the destination. Younger audiences can look forward to participating in traditional games, activities and musicals featuring star singers and folklore performances.
