Every year Festember keeps getting bigger and better! Last night Festember kicked off it’s third season at Umm Al Emarat Park, starting on the 13th of December till the 17th of December. Food trucks, and beautiful stalls are spread out across the field while a stage is set up on the centre for local and international performers. Music, food, and exciting new designs, all the necessary ingredients to have a great weekend, and Festember has it all!Festember brings together unique and exceptional boutiques from up and coming entrepreneurs. The owners of the stores will tell you the stories behind their brand, and it makes for an amazing shopping experience. Afra al Mheiry’s obsession with rings inspired her to start her jewellery store Stars by Afra. The stall is set up like a pink carousel with the jewelry displayed in dreamy setups based on the theme that inspired the jewelry. You can see the stories not only through the designs of the products, but also in the way each stall is uniquely decorated. Every single stall is worth stopping by and discovering.
Of course, entertainment is nothing without food! Abu Dhabi Food Festival collaborated with Festember to bring food and entertainment together. You can get puppy-shaped cotton candy from the King of Cotton Candy! Crowds gather to watch him dance to Michael Jackson’s music as he twists cotton candy into amazing shapes. You can go to Project Chaiwala to let them sing for you as they pour you delicious karak tea. If you can’t choose between dinner or dessert, have both at Glazed! They ditch the boring hot buns and serve your burger inside the slice of a glazed doughnut! There are so many options when it comes to food at Festember so make sure you check everything out before deciding!
Throughout the night you’ll hear live jazz, swing, and pop tunes from the main stage to entertain you while you shop and eat. Khalifa Nasser will be performing on every night of Festember so head down there with an empty belly and your dancing feet!
Festember will be on from 5pm to 12 pm on December 13th to December 17th 2017. To find out more about Festember, visit their website.
