(WAM) – Friends and families across Dubai are embracing a range of innovative ways to celebrate and mark Eid Al Fitr this year, all while following government protocols, social distancing and staying home to stay safe.

Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) rounds up the best ways to keep everyone in the household entertained throughout the Eid holiday, connect with local communities, and most importantly, have fun while staying indoors.


Live From Dubai.
With Eid looking very different this year, Dubai Calendar is extending its hugely successful “Live From Dubai” programme beyond Ramadan and will run the sessions throughout the Eid Al Fitr holiday. The schedule is bursting with fun, interactive, engaging and feel-good activities covering fitness, food, live music, DJ Sets, art and culture, comedy and so much more. Allowing residents to really make the most of their time at home, the performances, workshops and demonstrations are from some of the city’s best talent. The programme is kept under wraps until revealed on the Dubai Calendar Instagram page, but residents can expect to see local chefs, musical artists, fitness gurus and crafting experts.
