Date: January 3 – February 3, 2013
Venue: The Promenade, Dubai Festival City, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
A part of the Festival Promenade at Dubai Festival City will be transformed into a colourful Bedouin encampment for a month starting January 3, as the Dubai Shopping Festival 2013 brings the traditional life of the desert nomadic groups alive for city folks with the Bedouin Lifestyle Camp. The Bedouin Lifestyle Camp, which will be held until February 3 as part of the cultural events lined up for DSF 2013, seeks to bring to modern Dubai a bit of the hoary past of the region’s hardy and ingenious desert dwellers through their food, costumes, music, dances, handicrafts, folklore and heritage.
The countries of the Arab world that have a shared desert nomadic heritage will be represented at this event with their respective sections, including Yemen, Jordan, Mauritania, Egypt and Morocco, as well as the hosts UAE. Also represented will be Kenya and India – countries surrounding the Arab region that also have desert nomadic groups.
The Camp will be open from 4pm to 10pm on week days and from 4pm till midnight on weekends.
