DXB Cucumber Day returns with massive two-day festival

As far as peculiar evenings go, we’re sure exchanging cucumbers for juniper-based drinks is among the best of them. Well, get ready for not just one, but two nights of just that, but this time with a twist.

DXB Cucumber Day is making a grand return with a two-day ‘DXB Cucumber Carnival’ that’s completely free to attend, offering live music, a yet to be revealed headliner, along with everyone’s favourite form of fruity currency.

Taking place from Thursday October 17 and Friday 18 at Soho Garden, patrons of the city will be able to use their cucumbers to access the ‘V.I.C(ucumber) area’. We’re intrigued.

In the lead up to the festival, over 50 Dubai and Abu Dhabi bars will have a specially curated menu filled with juniper drinks for the next six weeks until Friday October 18.

Bars across the city include Distillery, McGettigan’s JLT, Morimoto, Publique, Treehouse and many more.

Check out the full list below:

Stay tuned for further updates on live musical acts and much more.

In the meantime, check out the big events happening at Zero Gravity this September, including a “6 is the new 12” event bringing in international DJs for a pool party not to be missed.

Don’t eat that cucumber, spend it instead.

When: Thursday October 17-Friday October 18 (festival), until Friday October 18 (menu)
Where: Soho Garden, Meydan Racecourse (festival)
