Dubai's Annual Festivals and Events in March

The cultural month of Dubai is march, with art festivals, food festivals, music festivals, literature festivals and whatnot. Dubai is a dream city containing everything you could ever imagine. Its a city for every type of person, a party, a top profile business meeting, a chef, an artist you’ve got it all here and what's better is that March is the time for action.

With the summer just around the corner, the weather is extremely pleasant and worth a trip. The sandstorms are rare in the month of March, and with the winter fading out the breeze is much more soothing. The temperatures can rise to about 30° Celcius, while the minimum hovers around 18° Celcius. March barely sees any rainfall which makes it even better to spend time outdoors and enjoy all the activities. However, it is one of the most humid months in the second week, so we recommend wearing airy and breathable clothing. March sees some of Dubai’s annual festivals and events which bring together the city to celebrate.
