Dubai is getting ready to host the seventh edition of the citywide celebration of food, through the Dubai Food Festival (DFF) from February 26 to March 14, 2020.

Organised by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), the 18-day DFF will offer a range of events including annual favourites such as Dubai Restaurant Week, Etisalat Beach Canteen, Hidden Gems, Foodie Experiences and Taste of Dubai.

During DFF, diners in the city will be able to seek out authentic dishes hidden in the city’s bustling streets, try out the newest food concepts in Dubai as well as attend masterclasses, chef’s tables and unique dining experiences. In addition, celebrity chefs will make appearances, and there will be cooking competitions.

“Now in its seventh year, Dubai Food Festival (DFF) is a magnificent platform for the city to demonstrate what it has to offer when it comes to food. A powerful name in the industry, the festival showcases Dubai as a gastronomy leader on the world map,” said DFRE CEO, Ahmed Al Khaja. “For 2020, we are set to continue delivering on the DFF concepts that put it firmly on the annual calendar – plus new initiatives to celebrate the citywide event. We look forward to welcoming both residents and tourists, of all nationalities and cultures from across the world to celebrate Dubai Food Festival 2020.”
