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.

Ali and Mina's Eid Special

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.

Culture at Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Centre for Cultural Understanding

Ramadan and Eid is the perfect time for bridging communities and connecting people, which is a key initiative at the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU). Take to their Instagram platform today as Abdulla Al Serkal, SMCCU Director will host a special live seminar embracing the spirit of Eid and the festive season.

Vir Das at Home

On May 28, India's best-selling comedian Vir Das will perform a one of a kind comedy show from his home to help keep the masses entertained and laughing in front of their laptops or mobile phones.  The show, Ha Ha Habibi is a timely gift for audiences in the UAE who need a break from the endless TV box sets and working from home grind.
