Winter Wonderland at WAFI

A snow filled Winter Wonderland is coming to WAFI this December. 


Join us from 5pm on 6th December for a festive opening event hosted by Kris Fade, with a tree lighting from Santa, a magical choir performance by the children of Dubai British School, Jumeirah Park and many more seasonal surprises.

Little ones can expect:

  • An arts & crafts area sponsored by Matalan
  • A fun-filled snow park
  • The chance to meet Santa
  • A soft toy and framed photograph with Santa
  • A draw entry with a chance to win prizes from Lufthansa
  • To post their Christmas wishes in a letter to Santa and have a chance to make their dreams come true!

The famous Santa’s Grotto will also return on 6th December and will mark the beginning to the spectacular festive period at WAFI. Children who visit Santa’s grotto between 6th and 24th December will receive a soft toy, a framed photograph with Santa, a raffle coupon for a chance to win one of the two exciting prizes with Lufthansa German Airlines, and many more offers for just AED 60. Little ones who visit the grotto will also be able to enjoy an arts & crafts area sponsored by Matalan and the fun-filled snow park while patiently waiting to meet Santa. Children can post their Christmas wishes in a letter to Santa and have a chance to make their dreams come true!

WAFI visitors can also look forward to the crowd-favourite animated displays with highlights such as polar bears, carousels and much more. Complementing the Christmas merriments, the festive Light and Sound Show will also run every evening at 7.30pm, 8.30pm and 9.30pm.
