Dubai is a city that knows how to celebrate and the 8th edition of the 'Eid in Dubai – Eid Al Adha,' festivities will be the perfect example of that panache. Set to take place from September 17 – 26, residents and visitors of the emirate can expect to see an array of social, cultural, and entertainment activities spark up around the city. 

A packed lineup of musical concerts, promotional shopping offers and other theatrical entertainment is being laid on by the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE). The pinnacle of the celebrations will be a series of firework displays taking place at specially selected locations around Dubai. 

"We can take pride in the fact that this special period of celebration has become an intrinsic part of the social and cultural calendar of Dubai," said DFRE's CEO Laila Mohammad Suhail. "This is further enhanced this year by a diverse calendar of events that will ensure that every member of the family has many memorable moments to take away from their Eid holidays," she added.
