A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
Looking for some family-friendly fun-filled activities to check out this weekend? From Kite Fest to Wacky Weekends, here are all our top picks…
Catch a showcase of hundreds of kites (and kite flyers) from all over the world at Dubai’s Kite Fest! Promising to present the very best of Dubai’s outdoor spirit in full swing, we can’t wait to get a glimpse of the colours streaking our city’s sky. This festival is a chance for the whole clan to catch a visual treat like no other, so grab the kiddos and spend the day beach-bound, soaking up some vitamin D…
When: Thursday, 17 to Saturday, 19 March, from 9:00am
Where: Jumeirah Beach Jumairah, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free!
We are already huge fans of Ripe and The Journey, so this event (complete with a festive Easter egg hunt), is right up our street! Get your mini farmer’s curiosity running wild out in nature at The Journey, where they get to pot a plant and nurture their own little Ripe Organic Veggie Patch – too cute. The pop-up market will be stocked with irresistible nibbles to keep the older little ones (the mamas and papas) happy too!
When: Saturday, 19 March
Where: The Journey, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free activities!
Looking for a place to celebrate your Saturday? Shop your way through the day at Reform Social & Grill, with 50 Market Stalls selling everything from fashion and jewellery, to homeware and art – and plenty of food. Rumour has it there will even be a Magic Phil show at 4:30, face painting AND an Easter Egg Hunt, so there’ll be plenty to keep the tinies busy whilst we lounge by the lakeside.
When: Saturday, 19 March, from 12 noon to 6pm
Where: Reform Social & Grill Dubai, The Lakes, Emirates Hills, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free Entry
New movies are always a treat, and this tale promises to be the biggest kiddie blockbuster of the year! Relax with a (large) popcorn and give the whole fam’s vocal chords some down-time catching Disney’s latest on the big screen. From the largest elephant to the smallest shrew (sounds a bit like the family…), the city of Zootopia is full of adventure – and we can’t wait to get in on the fun!
When: Pick your time here (3D options available)
Where: Your nearest cinema!
How much: From AED 35 for standard tickets

Watch the kids get involved in karaoke, or let them go crazy with colourful face paints… With plenty of games (and snacks!) to keep the tots happy, this is one to fit in your calendar. The best bit? It’s running every Friday and Saturday, so we have a go-to-playdate for all those unplanned weekends – hooray!
