It’s one of our favourite festive events…

Not feeling festive yet? Perhaps this news will get you in the mood, as Madinat Jumeirah is set to welcome the return of its festive market from December 20 until December 28.

The Fort Island festivities will run for nine days next month and will feature a traditional German market, food stalls, the opportunity to ride an abra with Santa, and of course, the stunning Christmas tree.
