Truckers UAE will return to Dubai on Saturday October 26 with craft markets, food trucks and stalls…

Does your idea of a perfect Saturday afternoon well spent include a casual day outside, drifting from food truck to food truck, with live music setting the scene?

If it is, then clear your diary on Saturday October 26 as the one place you’ll need to be is Truckers UAE at Emirates Golf Club.

The licensed, open-air food festival is free to attend and will run from 3pm to 11pm, with a range of different food trucks, craft markets, kids activities and live music performed by local artists throughout the day.

Fancy trying your hand at golf? There’ll be free lessons and sessions on between 4pm and 7pm, so you can even burn a few calories before you follow your nose to the enticing smells wafting your way.

Whilst it’s free entry, make sure you bring some pennies to spend on food and drink. It’s even worth going for the ‘Gram alone – as it’s set to be a bit of a showdown between the cool vintage trucks and their exterior designs, ranging from classic to psychedelic.

Disclaimer: Probably best to save the diet for Sunday, as we’re sure we can expect some mouthwatering treats such as burgers, chicken wings and smoked barbecue joints, as well as sweet stalls bursting with crepes, donuts and ice cream. Drool…

When you’ve browsed as much as your legs can carry you, flop down on the grass or one of the cushy bean bags and let the day turn into evening as the sun sets.

Truckers UAE Food Festival, Emirates Golf Club, Near Nakheel Metro, Emirates Hills, Dubai, 3pm to 11pm, Saturday October 20, free entry. Tel: (04) 417 9999.
