In addition to the permanent attractions of Dubai mentioned above, there a huge number of annual and one-off events that attract visitors from all over the world. Regular sporting extravaganzas such as the Dubai World Cup (the world’s richest horse race) in March, Dubai Rugby 7s in November or December, Dubai Tennis Championships in February, and Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament in January are all prestigious affairs. The UAE has firmly established itself as a key stop on many major international music stars’ tour dates, with big-name artists such as Elton John, Aerosmith and Shakira all having played sell-out concerts in recent times. Cultural festivals take place throughout the calendar too, such as food-fest Taste of Dubai and Dubai International Film Festival, while Islamic occasions such as Ramadan, Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha are special times to be in the UAE. Exciting new events are always being announced, so keep your eye on Dubai’s social calendar to make sure you don’t miss out.
