Rich, aromatic, and sweet – a bite into the delicious, juicy flesh of a fully ripe mango can be blissful! For mango-lovers, the Pakistan Mango Festival is the time to gorge on their favourite fruit. On July 1 and 2, Dubai will host a festival where a broad variety of mangoes will be on show for traders and tourists from around the world.
Free Entry To The Pakistan Mango Festival In Dubai
Senior officials, diplomats, senators, representatives of business councils, and trading companies from the UAE and Pakistan will witness more than a dozen popular types of Pakistani mangoes on the first day of the event. The first day of the festival is by invitation only. The second day’s activities are accessible to everyone.

The event’s attendees will engage with activities, contests, food, shopping, local stalls, and more that are all related to mangos. The event is a collaboration of the Pakistan Consulate, Pakistan Business Council, and Pakistan Association Dubai.
The Motive Is To Create Awareness
In addition, a programme named “Mangoes for a Cause” will be soon launched. All earnings from mango purchases made during the festival will go for donation to the non-profit hospital Pakistan Medical Centre. On the second day of the festival, we anticipate that roughly 2,000 people will attend.
After India, China, Thailand, and Indonesia, Pakistan produces over 1.8 million tonnes of mangoes annually, ranking fifth in the world. Mango supply is now predicted to decline by 50% this year from Pakistan’s 125,000 tonnes of exports in 2021.
Mangoes from Pakistan are popular in Dubai this year. Exports have been higher compared to previous years due to the high growth rate amid decreased production of mangoes in Pakistan during heatwave and climate change.
