Dubai Set For New Family Carnival

Dubai is gearing up for a major food festival in February with the launch of the first-ever Darnival event.

Running from 24 to 25 February 2017, at the Festival Bay in Festival City Mall Dubai. Darnival is expected to become one of the biggest draws during the most anticipated citywide food festival in the Middle East.

Hosted in partnership with Dubai Food Festival (DFF), the two-day family oriented event will capture the imagination and inspire audiences across Dubai with a fusion of fun and entertaining activities from some of Discovery Networks’ newest and most popular brands available exclusively on beIN – Fatafeat, DKids, DLife and DMAX – bringing the channels to life for an eager audience.

Taking center stage at the Darnival festival will be the Fatafeat Kitchen, which returns for the third year featuring live cooking demonstrations by Fatafeat’s biggest celebrity chefs Mohamad Orfali, Leila Fathallah, Daad Abu-Jaber, Salma Soleiman, Karim Haidar, Wafik Belaid, Darine El Khatib and Arda Turkmen. Star of DLife’s show “Ask Dr Nandi”, Dr. Partha Nandi will make a special appearance and conduct a live Q&A session on health and wellbeing. Fans will be able to enjoy fun live performance by Chatterbox from the popular DKids shows Hi-5, plus the unveiling of DKids channel characters. Darnival ensures plenty of family fun across the two days.

Nancy Hanna, head of Brand for Discovery Networks Mena region, said: “Last year, the company witnessed amazing success of Fatafeat Kitchen, and we are excited to partner again with Dubai Food Festival by bringing Darnival to celebrate the most awaited event in the Middle East. Darnival promises to be an amazing family carnival filled with entertaining, fun, and engaging activities and giving the audience a chance to experience their favourite channels on beIN.”
“We are committed to providing an exceptional experience to our fans and invest in moments that bring our fans closer,” she added.

The family carnival is hosted as a part of Dubai Food Festival 2017 at Festival Bay, Festival City Mall in Dubai, which runs from February 23 to March 11.
