Roll up, roll up!
Cucumbers, the majestic green fruit of wonders, so grand that last year’s DXB Cucumber Day was an instant hit.
Based on the success of this annual celebration, an amplified version of the day has now turned into a full-blown two-day carnival!
Hendricks have come back bigger and better this year with DXB Cucumber Carnival – an exciting, festival-style weekend at Soho Garden on 17th & 18th October.
Entry is FREE, for you to enjoy all the incredible festivities on offer with a bag full of the green fruit.
The Cucumber Carnival will now be accepting cucumber as currency so don’t forget to bring your green! Exchange one cucumber for a free drink on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th October
Introducing: the peculiar and spectacular DXB Cucumber Carnival.
Everyone’s favourite brand of spirits understands the need for an adventurous, fun weekend and this one will not disappoint.
Enjoy diverse musical performances from international artists such as the Electric Swing Circus, and other quirky musicians. Join in on the sporting feats, workshops, shows and of course beverage tastings, happening ALL weekend long.
You can even take part in the festival’s High-Tea, tuck into The Feast, or join the afterparty and party the night away.
From theatrics such as pickpockets and magic shows to tarot readings and musical performances, there is something for everyone.
Re-enact classic scenes out of The Notebook and meet your Allie or Noah while getting your tarot reading done.
Or, watch performers drive an audience wild with tricks unknown to most men.
There are even roaming acts throughout the festival, including physical comedy, which is bound to liven the atmosphere and have everyone wanting more!
Show off your skills and take part in some sports feats
An action-packed weekend just wouldn’t be the same without some sports day fun from yesteryear.
Guests are invited to take part in hobby horse polo, cucumber croquet, and even Vintage Olympics, which includes tug of war, rose and spoon race, three-legged races, and even a Cucumber Cup Horse Race.
Tap, sway and jive to neo-jazz, swing and electro beats.
Dance, dance, dance!
Put on your dancing shoes and prep yourself for an invigorating experience with the quirky line up of international acts.
Dance your heart out with the exciting combination of 20s swing, gypsy jazz, electric double bass and live drums from the awesome 6-piece, The Electric Swing Circus.
