Six months extravaganza

Global Village is gearing up for the launch of its Silver Jubilee anniversary on October 25, 2020.

The season will run for 25 weeks — a little over six months — this edition, which means Global Village visitors will, for the first time in many years, be able to experience Ramadan at the park. The Global Village will remain open until April 2021. The Muslim month of fasting will begin around April 12, 2021. Guests will savour many cuisines of the world for iftar, the sunset meal to end the daily fast.

The family destination is in the process of setting up another great season for its guests while maintaining the highest safety standards. Global Village has already been awarded the Dubai Assured Stamp by Dubai Municipality, Dubai Economy and Dubai Tourism (DTCM) in light of the stringent preparations for opening.
