The Dubai Food Festival is taking to the streets of Al Quoz this year with 'Street Nights' – a weekend-long street festival bursting with delicious food, brilliant art and great music. We can't think of a better way to spend a Dubai winter evening, joining in a sense of community and watching live performance art, cool graffiti installations being created in front of your eyes, fresh live DJ's supplying the soundtrack to the evening and feasting on some of the most delicious  street food offerings in the city. 

Alexandre Teodoresco, co-founder of Street Nights, said: "Street Nights is a one-of-a-kind event offering a unique street-feel experience for Dubai residents and tourists, allowing them to discover and enjoy street food, art and music performances in the burgeoning artistic district of Al Quoz. We hope to entertain cultural and foodie enthusiasts of all ages with this exciting event."
