Dubai is known to attract millions of visitors across the world and generate over $1 billion in revenues from these festivals.
Dubai festivals are a great supplement to the regions already booming economy.
The biggest of all festivals is the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF held late January to late February).
Ramadan is a very important date on the Islamic calendar and it marks the beginning of a fasting period for the entire lunar month. During this time a Muslim is not allowed to consume food, drinks, cigarettes and engage in any for of pleasure including sex.
The fasting period is from dawn until dusk so observers have their meals during dark hours. When the Ramadan period ends at month-end, everyone in Dubai celebrates and its quite a scene to watch the celebrations as an observer.
There are many other festivals in Dubai, but none bigger than the three mentioned above. But the other festivals are more specific and target a niche audience.
For example, the Dubai International Film Festival discussed above is one such festival that is organized by the Dubai Media City. The event is held annually at the Madinat Jumeirah and attracts a ton of visitors to Dubai every year.
