Expo City To Become a Winter Wonderland for 50 Days

(DMC) The Mobility District, Surreal water feature and Al Wasl Plaza will transform into a magical land, lined with a traditional, chalet-style Christmas market, pine trees and fun fairground games, featuring a towering tree and a letter-to-Santa station from 23 November 2022 to 8 January 2023

Kicking off with its family-friendly Fan City on 20 November for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Expo City Dubai will offer 50 days of festivities.

Winter City will commemorate National Day from 30 November to 2 December and host a special concert on 2 December.

Other highlights at Al Wasl include a dazzling ceremony on Friday, 9 December that will bring to life Winter City’s ‘White Christmas’ with the lighting up of the jaw-dropping 52-foot tree; the second edition of Expo 2020’s popular Mrs Claus Christmas Show from 20-29 December; a first-of-its-kind Carols by Candlelight from 20-25 December; and nightly projection shows.

Ongoing seasonal sparkle includes jumping, sliding, climbing and zip-lining pursuits, as well as gingerbread, wreath and ornament-making workshops; a toy factory that customises teddy bears; and a Santa’s Grotto, while hot chocolate, mulled drinks and mince pies will sweeten the food-and-beverage offering.

Kids aged 6-12 years can join Expo City Dubai’s action-packed Winter Camp and enjoy unique indoor and outdoor activities across two themed weeks. Running from 0900-1400, Monday-Friday, 12-23 December, the first week at Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion spotlights the plight of our planet in a fun and informative way, while week two at Alif – The Mobility Pavilion focuses on innovation.
