Legit wow to this – a free street party is back for another season.
#WowJBR returns brings a festival of art, music and family fun to the waterfront strip of Jumeirah Beach Residences from 15th November. They’re not messing either – a massive 20 weeks of activities are disturbing the neighbourhood every weekend.
Each month has a different theme, from carnivals and circuses in November, to winter festivities over December, followed by health and well-being in January, Chinese New Year in February, finishing up with inspiration from the arts and a food festival in March.
UAE National Day is also being marked with plenty of pomp and colour at the second season of the popular campaign to transform JBR’s 1.7 km promenade into something really special.
Head down there to watch live Latin bands, traditional Emirati dances, daring acrobatics and much more, under a canopy of twinkling lights. An outdoor cinema shows film favourites, which are brought to life with roaming characters wandering off the screen and into our selfies.
Speaking of snapping, #WOWJBR has a dedicated photo wall for your pics and art installation you’ll want to pose in front of, including holograms, 3D mapping and a larger-than-life Rubik’s Cube that visitors must solve to win exciting prizes. Kids are always winners – they get their own zone, with plenty of workshops and activities to keep them occupied.
Last year’s 10-day music festival is back and we’ll let you know which local and international artists are taking over its five stages this time round.
Nabil Ramadhan, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Retail, says: “We are proud to see the return of #WOWJBR, following the success of last year’s campaign. This year the destination will again transform itself into an immersive hub that celebrates art, entertainment and an exceptional ambience.”
#WOWJBR launches 15th-17th November at JBR. Timings: 7pm onwards Thursday and 4pm-10pm on Friday and Saturday. Entry is free. Keep an eye on what’s coming up at www.instagram.com/jbr_official/
