Start your engines…

Love a classic car? You can be amazed and gawk at over a thousand of these steel beauties at ‘The Grand Picnic’ which returns this weekend on Sunday, January 21 from 10am to 6pm at Safa Park in Dubai.

The fun day out is organised by the Flat12 Cafe team, who deem the event ‘Dubai’s biggest picnic’. However, it’s more than just a picnic, and guests who attend the event can expect plenty of cool cars, food, coffee, and community vibes.

The best news is that the event is family-friendly and all it will cost you is Dhs3 per person to gain entry to the park.

Expect to see a whopping 1,200 cars spanning classic; rare and modern, trucks, and motorcycles. Registrations to show off your car are now closed, but you can still come as a spectator and enjoy the cool vibes.

You will need to pass by the registration booth to register and winners will be announced on January 24.
