Emaar announces International Village Festival in Dubai

Leading property developer, the Emaar Properties, has announced a fifteen day cultural and retail festival, due to take place at the Emaar Boulevard in Downtown Burj Dubai from 17th April 2009 to 2nd May 2009.

Known as the International Village, the festival showcases a diverse range of products from about 20 countries, across 41 pavilions.

Designed to suit various cultures, the festival will display products, artifacts and general paraphernalia from countries such as Europe, Africa, India, Korea, China, Singapore, Thailand, Pakistan, Phillipines, UAE, Tunisia and Vietnam and other Middle Eastern countries. The participating countries will represent their cultural ethos by way of their retailed products. This would be further complimented by country-specific cultural programmes and entertainment.

Dubai being the cultural hub of the region, such an event would help in strengthening the tourist appeal, by establishing Downtown Burj Dubai as a must-visit tourist destination, says Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties at UAE.

International Village reflects Emaar's promise to be the lifestyle center that further complements the other attractions in Downtown Burj Dubai, such as The Dubai Fountain.
Visitors to the family festival will be treated to a rich diversity of shopping choices from several parts of the world, apart from cultural performances. The pavilions set up along the Village will display a collection of handicrafts, jewelry, artifacts, traditional dresses, clothing, home accessories, silverware, crystals, perfumes and food items.

International Village will be held periodically at the Emaar Boulevard, and forms a part of Downtown Burj Dubai's plans to enlighten the boulevard. The festival will be open on the said days from 4pm to 11pm during weekdays and from 4pm to midnight on weekends and holidays.

Emaar Boulevard has been designed to be the nerve-center of activity in the city, and a celebration of downtown culture with high-fashion shops, cafes, hotels, and walkways.
