If your idea of the perfect weekend involves hopping in your 4X4 and hitting the dunes, mountain biking through wadis, or stand-up paddle boarding straight off the beach, then the Dubai Offroad and Adventure Show might be right up your alley.

The show will be held at the Dubai Autodrome from November 6 to 8. It’s the first of its kind in the region to unite every outdoor pursuit one could possibly think of for one massive event. Set over an exhibition area of 120,000sqm, it’s the perfect place to pick up some new gear, chat to the experts and even try a new activity; the outdoor playground will feature a climbing wall, off-roading track, swimming pools for kayaking and other watersports, and even bungee jumping.

According to Outdoor UAE General Manager Daniel Birkhofer, the focus of the show is for visitors to get involved, rather than just sit back and watch. “At the Dubai Off-Road Adventure Show, we are allowed to be children again and try out and enjoy new activities in a safe environment,” he said.

Of course, if you’re more of a spectator, there’ll be plenty of entertainment on hand in the form of demonstrations and workshops. Add to that a chill out area, plenty of healthy food options and a kids’ area complete with bouncy castle, and you’ve got the perfect family day out. Admission is Dhs30 per person and children under 12 go free.
