Galleria40 Gets Festive

We may not get layers of cold white powder come Cairene Christmas, but we damn well get carnivals and bazaars! We do our best to, y’know, fill the jolly season with shopping and munchies. Which are the best things about these festive times ANYWAY OKAY? Anyway, Galleria40 is getting in the holiday mood with one massive carnival that’ll cater to foodies and shopaholics alike. They’re creating their own little winter wonderland at the sprawling venue with a day overloaded with style and sumptuous treats, gorgeous gift ideas and gourmet goodies, and obviously some music to set the mood, this December 12th.

The Batter Half & Co. will be on hand with their sugar-rush-inducing treats – hel-lo red velvet cheesecake. We’ve been saving up our holiday calories to get you in our tummy. Gourmet Burgers juicy concoctions will also be present at the event, as will the mall’s very own Ovio, that haven of heavenly European cuisine. The eatery will be up front and centre with their homemade gourmet goodies – they make their own JAM PEOPLE. THEY HAVE VANILLA INFUSED HONEY. VANILLA. HONEY.

The style central will also, naturally, see some of the city’s coolest designer darlings setting up shop for the day. Shabby Chic and their adorable boho aesthetic will be there with their to-die-for variety of furniture and home accessories, as will Beit Matta and their funky, eclectic pieces. Hey, if our friends out there are reading this, this is us giving you gift ideas for Christmas… Just FYI. And finally, uber-stylist Maissa Azzab will be dominating the sartorial side of the day, with a full on fashion show!

The Riff Band, Abou Wel Shabab, and Glass Onion will all be taking the stage with their unique Rock tunes, that we imagine will be getting a festive twist in time for Christmas. And there’s a kids corner so you can ditch leave your brats children while you go do your xmas shopping! There are definitely going to be a lot of Christmas carnivals come December but we have a feeling this one’s gonna be leading the pack.
