Make the most of your StayHome holiday
People 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. Here are a few ways to keep everyone in the household entertained throughout the holiday, connect with local communities, and most importantly, have fun while staying indoors.

Popular comedy duo Ali Al Sayed and Mina Liccione will be taking over the Dubomedy Facebook page for a live show filled with tickling humour, special guests, musicians, circus acts and a bundle of surprises on May 24. All age groups are welcome to join the online celebration, with advance booking required to secure a virtual spot.
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. 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 expect to see local chefs, musical artists, fitness gurus and crafting experts.
